I decided to go with a Scope Buggy and it arrived today. This way I won't have to manhandle the scope to much.
Here it is right before and during the tear down to move it from my basement. http://www.youtube.c...ctSblwSaj0&t=1s
Now to be cursed with cloudy skies for the next few days most likely.

Well I assembled the Scope Buggy tonight. It is a decent buy, but, the cups for holding the tripod out by the rear wheels twist and don't leave much of a cup to hold the tripod.
So I will cut some angle ion and increase the size of the cup to better capture the tripod's feet. Also there are no set screws to lock the outer tube to the inner for tube to help
stabilize the rear wheels fixed position, just the weight of everything is what is expected to hold everything in place. So a few well placed tack welds will be used to secure
everything firmly in place before I even think of putting the optical tube on.

I want to take this moment to apologize to everyone in the upper Midwest. It has been either to darn cold or cloudy now since I have gotten my scope set-up. I had one almost decent evening to check collimation.
So may the temps start to rise and the skies clear.
