      Yes, I am limited to a small scopes now, I did a Nice Takahashi FCT-100 but it was to heavy to lift, had to sell it.
      I did pick up a little Orion 102mm Apex. Actually I am quite surprised as to how well it resolves & has good contrast.

      How do you move that 6" refractor?

      i have my scope/mount on a dolly system to move out of my garage,i am a fan of maksutuv-cassegrains,the apex would be a nice lunar/planetary double star scope and more, you could make a nice list of double stars for autumn,and follow the phases of the moon..see you around

      I am too an amateur astronomer. Living in a very light polluted country with a tight budget. I use a meade ETX-70 refractor. As weird as it sounds the targeting computer is useful.

      I could buy a better one but i have no car so why bother.

      My eyes are must be getting worse. I thought the thumbs down icon I put in at the end of my post was someone scratching their head trying to figure out something.
