I have heard of paralysis by analysis before but gee whiz. :grin:

I don't know how to make a cart. I just pick mine up and lug it around. You can also take the tube assebly off and move it in 2 pieces.

You will like the scope.

Breathe in, breathe out, Breathe in, breathe out........

Congrats on the purchase you will love it.

You sound about as rattled as I was making up my mind. Take a few more deep breaths eyepieces, books, and charts are next.

I went out with my old refractor and EQ mount last night. Very clear here. I'm awaiting the Dob which, as promised, will arrive on the 11'th.
Anyone going to Egypt or Greece to view Venus salutating our star?
Thank all of again for your advice.
