I do enjoying sketching what I observe, it really immerses me into what I'm observing and makes me pay attention to every detail ☺️

This is what is known as "a nice problem to have". :)

I wish I had taken these pics outside, but hey ho...

TAL100RS with fetching dewcap from Screwfix, good for transportation and reduces scope length to around 900mm.

WP_20170916_001.thumb.jpg.f41306ea4a88c24644d257958ae00c68.jpg

 

 

All mounted:

WP_20170916_002.thumb.jpg.fc3758463aa0be940c9ba28c591fd733.jpg

 

 

With baader finder shoe and dual finder attachment from FLO, works really well...

4" of well figured humble achromatic glass:

I've just come across a picture of my scopes which I took during the summer for a talk I was doing at the time, I don't think I've posted it before.

Left to right:

  • Altair Astro 60mm finder/guider & Williams Optics Megrez 72 on a Mini Giro mount
  • Tal 100RS & Celestron C8 on a Skytee 2
  • Altair Astro RC6 and lodestar camera atop a Celestron Advanced GT (aka CG5) - used for EAA

I have since acquired a Heritage 130P and also have a Williams Optics Zenithstar 66 not shown. Too many scopes now, need to thin them out a bit!

It's slowly getting there...finally, after a couple of months acquiring the setup, it's taking shape :)

What's that piggy backing the scope?

Thank you, yes, it's a fan-less Minix mini-pc, then a power distributor with the SharpSky Pro focuser hub at the front. Now just got to get everything talking to each other.

I've just had a quick "window shop" through this thread, so apologies if this has been mentioned before and I have missed it.

I am surprised that there are sct scopes on here that appear to be guided by guidescopes. I thought scts had to be guided through an oag because of mirror-movement inherent in the design?

Thanks.

I use a guidescope with my C6 SCT with no problems.
