Fast set up


Recommended Posts

The old astro has been on the back burner for the last year , but following a quick astro camp last weekend I decided a setup for quick drop and go astro was needed

 So dob or something different.. well I looked in my scope shed and decided different a 6 inch f5 Orion optics newt minus it's rings, a short celestron dovetail ( drilled tube...) Weight 6.4 pounds. That will go on the skyprogidy mount I managed to pick cheap..

Just been out with it, set up under 3 minutes. 45 mins observing, moon,Jupiter, 15 messier's, five doubles and three ngcs ... Sorted. Should have done it ages ago..

I can pick it up one handed and sit down to observe.. hobby rekindled..
