So sort of curious how well an AP 160 does on a Mach 1...I know not an "ideal" situation but workable? I think the OTA is 27#, the mount's capacity is 45#...looking at the portability factor primarily. I know a 130 f/6.3 works easy enough but not the bigger scope...

Already, in the gathering dusk, a few of the stars are turning on their lights.
Vega, the brightest one, is now dropping towards the west. Can it be half
a year since I watched her April rising in the east? Low in the southwest
Antares blinks a sad farwell to fall...
