    Hi Guys.


    My name is Peter.
    A small one(group) but a good one.
    I love my TAKs I have a TOA 130 and a TSA102.
    I am currently building myself a wheely buggy type transportation vehicle.
    One thing I hate about astronomy (I hope i'm not the only one out there that thinks that way) is setting everything up.....taking it all outside putting it together and aligning.
    I must say that my alignment procedure is nothing like it should be.
    By that I mean that i'm clueless (pretty much) in trying to do a polar alignment.
    I do understand the point out there that we are supposed to be looking at. I would even go so far as to say that I have a reasonable idea where it is.
    BUT, setting those rings etc...just leaves me speechless.
    I too (see one of my other reply posts) have bought a Lodestar auto guider and have the gear to mount it too...80mm Chinese scope mounted atop my TAK rings.

    Have a great day, TAK astro group.

    I have an FS60 (with flattener) that I've been using for some alt-az piggyback photography on my N11GPS, and a second hand FSQ106 that I'm planning to use with an EQ6 - once I get the hang
    of polar aligning the EQ6 and getting the goto to work - but with work and the UK weather I haven't had many opportunities to try it out for imaging yet - but it makes a nice rich field scope in the meantime...

    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Brent
    Peter, I honestly agree with you. Setting up is almost an issue for me. I haven't looked into my TSA102 more than ten times.
    But when you come to think about it, it's all worth it in the end.
