    I already posted the photos in another thread, but I'll put them in this one as well.

    The telescope is a Celestron SP-C6 on a Vixen Super polaris mount.

    Many other enviable rigs shown in this thread too! Had to LMAO at Jennifer's hi-tech AP rig. Too funny. Being a refractor guy, Doug's setup has me salivating. Yoddha's JMI triplet is pretty too and Joe's Schmidt stack is damned impressive! Nice rigs to everyone I didn't mention too!
