Well, I've been in the new place a few months now and my well loved dob is gathering dust due to the terrible view (see here: http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/s...ad.php?t=54558
), though I have had it out a few times. The light pollution doesn't help either, it's better than my last place, but still bad compared to when I was in Mildura.
So, I think I should get an easy set up and easy transport scope. I am thinking about the Meade 6" Lightswitch. I don't think I would be happy with anything smaller than that after the 10" dob and I want something with an OTA I can keep in a case and put in the back of a small car with the tripod. I also want something I can set up on a hillside somewhere dark in 5 minutes. Whilst my dob may be transportable, it just isn't realistically so - at least not with my life and vehicles.
Right now price is no problem as I couldn't even afford the postage on a 2" tasco, but when I do have some money I want another scope. Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about the lightswitch or any serious alternatives?
