    My first goto mount was a Meade LXD-650, high capacity, rock solid mount, a bit of a work of art for its time.
    I spent more hours swearing at it and its electronics than I ever did observing with it.

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind. - Jon Isaacs (CN)
