'SAXON MOBILE ASTRONOMICAL ALL-TERRAIN TRANSPORT PLATFORM!'

Stuck it on a lawnmower Chassis... I think this is the best transport solution.

Also used by Tombaugh. I LOVE this scope! Used it for many years already.

Hi Chucky,Wana Swap I have a Big 16" scope which I obviously don't need, as you can see sooooooo much better in your 8" scope
I seems I am getting a bit old to be lugging around such a big scope when I can get Muuuuch better results out of an 8"
I just reallised I don't need to swap as I have an 8"SCT in the observatory so I will save myself the effort in setting up the 16" and go back to using the 8"
Cheers
