I am looking at adding a 180C for solar (Ha, Ca and WL with ERF) imaging and visual night time use. I will roll the scope out on a scope buggy. How well does it hold collimation?  Do I risk knocking the collimation out by rolling it out?   

 

Thanks

The Mewlons hold collimation very well, if it does not fall over rolling it out on a scope buggy you will be fine. Mine is on an AVX mount and tripod that sits on a stand that I roll around in the ROR observatory and have never had issues with collimation.
