I still need to buy a mount for it.  Just want to say this thing is a beast!  Astro photographers, where are you storing your telescopes?  Better yet, are you taking this in and out each time.  Or do you have permanent set up for it?

Unless you have a shed or you mount this on a dolly with wheels and store in your garage.  That is exactly what you are going to have to do.

Put it on a mount with wheels that have locks on them.  That way you can lock the wheels when you get in position.

As soon as I get a mount for it.  I'll be posting a bunch of pics.  Keep in mind, I'm a newbie at this and from what friends have said, will take a while to get around the learning curve.  

I'm excited though.  I've saved up for this for some time and have used friends telescopes.  Back in February, I joined an astronomy club here.  I didn't feel right there as I was the only one with out a telescope.   Or it seemed that way.   Two others in the club had Stellarvue telescopes and swore by them.  The problem is, I spent a lot on the telescope that my mount budget is kind of lean.  I'm already shopping on Ebay for a used deal!
