About time I updated my posting in here since I have made a few changes.

What was a GS 12" Deluxe Dob is now a monster!

Pic 1: GS f5 12" reflector/dob with John Dobson's Autograph, Cooling fan, Crayford Focuser, Saxon ED80 Auxillary scope with GS right-angle finder with adjustable red-light crosshair illumination, Orion Accufocus electronic focuser, Toucam 840k Pro II, Red Dot Finder.

All perched on top of a montrous restored Home-made Heavy Duty GEM mount, and all computer controlled. (no GoTo)

Boy! That's a mouth full!!

Pic 2: The guts of the Mount! To give you an idea of the size of this beast, this section sits at about eye level when standing next to the mount.
