I’m finding my NGT-18 too hard to travel with.
Its great around home just wheel it out and I’m observing.
Getting it on the ute is not for the faint hearted.
The NGT has a rotating secondary cage to keep the focuser in a comfortable position, but it’s a bit high to begin with.
I’ve ordered a kit from http://www.dobstuff.com/
and a ServoCAT
Dennis from dobstuff has been great to deal with. He has had some good ideas about the build and some practical suggestions about freight. Gary from StellarCAT has also being great, he sent Dennis some stuff to go with the ground board.
I’ll be installing the ServoCAT. How hard can it be?
I’m going to reuse my mirror, Argo Navis and some other stuff and end up with an ultra light-ish scope with go-to.
One of the things I love about the NGT is tracking, ServoCAT and Argo Navis will take care of that!
Funny how when you pull your telescope apart you get clear sky's
