Re: Drift Alignment To Help With Unguided Images

I’m currently using Meade’s LX850 ACF OTA and like it a lot. I don’t seem to suffer from mirror flop as the built-in crayford focuser works smooth as glass, then I fine tune the focus with my Moonlite electric focuser. Love it. Carrying this on an AP1100 permanently mounted in my observatory.

The guy who makes AG Optical's optics is a neighbor and personal friend of mine, so -- just speaking for myself -- I'd look at AGO first. As for PlaneWave -- they moved from Calif. to Michigan, which converts delivery from a simple drive
to the factory into a $1000 crating and shipping adventure. Of course, I'd have to pay for shipping an AGO scope, too, since his plant is in Alabama. But, of the two telescope manufacturers, the other consideration puts AGO at the top of my personal list.
