Woe unto him ..or her..who tries to guide the LX90. Let him..or her..rejoice in a lightweight scope upon the mighty EQ6. Mind you,I'd sooner be looking through my 6"f8 while the clouds look down the 8"f4 Le marchant configuration. And there should be a constellation called 'Camelot' and I would worship it in the anticipation of a big lottery win. Maybe I'll move to the Isle of Man..damn these drug

Its got loads of features Paul. As much as I love CDC I want to concentrate on one object on a particular night and this looks the biz..As soon as the monsoon and fog go i'll try it.

Or even tonight from the look of that cloud and mist..Honest though, apart from about 2 hours with a new mount I'm not getting much time to get to grips with this software. From what I've seen though it looks promising. It connects to the EQ6 and does goto's. I can choose what type of object to observe and set that list for the night in a sequence that suits. I just wish the weather would f*** off... :no:
