12 Inch diameter mirror, 4 foot long OTA, and tripod mount legs as big around as your mothers thighs! what a beast! the equatorial mount/brain is swollen beyond healthy limits! this thing could have been on creature-double-feature!



So much FUN!!!

That thing is monstrous! Do you have a low ambient light area where you can use it? Cause if you don't, I do, so, you can send it to me, and, I can use it... ;)

No point in even thinking about this in east China. We're lucky to see the sky once a week :(
