Really amazing and good photo---thanks for posting it :thanks:Thanks Jerry, yes, these scopes are my pride and joy and a real pleasure to use.
The wooden mahogany tripod on the Takahashi TOA130/EM400 combo is classically beautiful, elegant and practical as it helps dampen any vibrations quickly.
Truly a work of art.
You should get your scope out and try it out.
Thanks Curtis, glad you like it.
Good on you for making your own 80mm using PVC.
The best ones are the ones you make yourself.
LOL, I remember making my own green little laser out of PVC.
Love it !
Found another old astro photo I took of the Lagoon Nebula, way back when..... (early attempt, while I was still learning), well you never stop learning do you?
Yeah, that EM 400 mount with mahogany tripod is just awesome and a beautiful thing to see---nothing about it done on the cheap --all of it, real deal high quality---the scope too for that matter. Fantastic and serious toy.
