Hi fellow stargazers...I wonder if I could get your various opinions on three options I have picked as an adjustable viewing chair for my sessions with my XT8. I'm 44 and whilst not physically impaired in any way, I find that tensing and leaning over my Dobsonian for a few hours does leave me in a fair amount of lower back pain by the time I come back inside. In another one of my threads, a member suggested a chair to help and a quick Google search has given me various threads here and on SGL linking to very expensive options...I can't really pay a couple of hundred quid/bucks at the moment and wondered if these would help at all...Don't laugh about the stool, I know it may seem silly, but its easily adjustable and I really only need something to take the weight off my feet/back for a while while staring at M31 or whatever..
To be honest, even though I know I should be looking at my DSO's for 20 mins or so to really start seeing the detail, I find that I give up far quicker because I'm uncomfortable, so really, anything would help.
What do you guys/gals think? These are as much as I can spend right now.
Thanks for reading. In case this info helps, I'm 44, 5 foot 10 and normal size for my height and these were suggested in another thread, but more than I'm willing to spend (yes, I know I'm talking about my health and comfort, but I get so little time with y scope that I'd like a cheaper option for now)
EDIT #2: This has also been suggested which is similar to one of my options and the images show the reviewer using it for his scope.
I'd still love to hear what you guys think or recommend, although it does seem as if this question has been asked to death. Should have read more before posting. Sorry....
