Today I had the great people at Starizona put 4 inch rings on a Losmandy dovetale so I could mount my old, seldom used Unitron 4inch, on a CGX. Just wanted those hard, dark views of the past. Next the D&G 6 ( I Hope).smile.gif

A long tube classic refractor on such an exciting GoTo mount has got to be exciting. Imagine how awesome star splitting should be now, with a fully robotic GoTo mount.
