... and no I don't mean the kind with four legs, fur and a tail. :p

This is an 8in LX200. It gets used quite a bit and now has a new hand paddle comming because its owner dropped the one he has and its now has some issues. Other than the hand paddle, this scope has been great, its previous owner was our own John Crilly. My wife has learned not to trust packages comming from Ohio :lol:

This is the only CAT I have.

It seems most of you (the other forums as well) keep your scopes in your living areas. There's no way on earth I'd be able to do that. :shrug:]
Of course, I've taken over the garage so I suppose I shouldn't. :grin:

Well, the response so far is nowhere the same as the show your scope pics in the reflector and refractor forum.

Well, we all know that is SCT is what a telescope is supposed to look like anyway. :wron:

Those are refractors? I thought they were counter weights!
