AP160/Mach 1?

Mike Shade

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
