I have been wanting a short focal length instrument for wide field imaging in the 400 to 450mm range. I finally settled for this little guy as it had a like it or return it deal (30 day....nights?). For the price I could not resist. My new baby!

Wow, the detail on the moon really jumps out at you. I also like the cloud in that photo. Cool side by side setup as well.

How do you like the 'side-by-side' set-up?  CG-5 like it all right?

Tim.

Haven't really used it other than the static Moon shot. Bought it used but new to me. I have some doubt about it's working well on the CG-5 due to motor housing collisions (stupid design). The dual saddle setup off sets the head (DEC motor housing) by 90°. I will use it mostly on my SW EQ-6GT. On it there should be no problems at all.
