  1. Guys, our club is buying a travel scope and we are seriously considering the SUMERIAN OPTICS ALKAID 16". Michael has been very helpful answering questions but we'd love to hear your impressions or advice, ESPECIALLY if you currently own or have owned one. Photos of the mirror cell or of the setup would be very helpful (says it's 6 point but looks like 3 arms, is this sufficient?) What is the alt/az movement / balance / shake like? If you've used it to travel via plane also, what was that like? Did you find it easy to manage. Cheers!
  2. My club are looking at buying a UL16 and we are struggling to get accurate sizes for the built scope in it's constituent parts. As in, the lower assembly inc mirror, the secondary cage and the poles. What we want to do is see if we can fit it into 2 suitcases like these https://www.luggagex.com/collections/luggagex/products/black-luggagex Has anyone here got one that they can put a tape measure to? Thanks in advance! Frank Chairman, Limerick Astronomy Club. https://twitter.com/LimerickAstro https://www.facebook.com/limerickastronomyclub/
