Yes, no need to ship batteries, power cords, AP counterweights and such. Itoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
have all of that here. I also have an 80, 100 and 120mm APO's sitting
around that you could use. But sorry, my name hasn't yet come up on the
waiting lists so no AP refractors for you to play with.
My "logistical problems" coming to NEAF this year boil down to the fact that
I have a friend that used to live near NEAF but now he has a new squeeze and
has moved to the other side of the Hudson River. That means no more free
local transportation and a free place to stay!

Why thank you, Chris. I've never brought anything larger than an Astrotrac
before. I may just have to give this some serious consideration. Although,
I won't be shipping a deep cycle battery.... A-P's, George Whitney's advice.
He says not even a Powertank. Dew heaters draw too much current and can
stop a mount. I'd slew. Not to worry, I've used multiple power sources
Next time, let me know you've got logistical problems. You should be here.

save on hassle and expense of hauling them through airports.1200
series before as a volunteer at Mauna Kea. George and I talked through thdone
with Vic Maris' help as my refractors are all StellarVue. A combinationof
APO's for imaging and visual use and ED scopes for guiding. Heaviest usea
152mm achromat on it. Picture it now, a scope that cost around $800 and aenjoy
them both. 10 times better in the case of the public star party scope,
