No kidding!  Do you get out here much?  Heck if you do... hit me up, let's do lunch or Starbucks!  

New Hampshire... are you out in the country?  

Kind of, but not far enough. A hundred miles to Boston, 240 to NY, and twelve to Keene , NH...(pop, 22,000). When I go west now, its to Seattle area, where my oldest son lives. Next trip we plan on heading to the area south of Mono lake. I miss the entire area from Bodie, Mono lake to the high Sierras....(I'm starting to tear up). I still have friends in SoCal so a trip is possible. I'd bump a line if coming....;)

Lots of camera makers are behind on output. The Sony sensor facility was shut down 4 months due to the earthquake. Fuji seems unaffected as it ordered and had on hand it's sensors for the new XT-2 before the quake happened. Right now it's just a matter of time and things will be back to normal.

So that company owns Calumet and Polaroid?  Seems like they picked up a few almost lost souls!  That's good, Calumet was a good brand.  I like Polaroid too, but just haven't done business with them since I owned one of their cameras back in the 70's.

No it actually looks like this. This was a test shot in March to see how may new imaging system would work this summer. That's the Astrovan in the foreground. It can be driven virtually anywhere but only up to 50mph.

Like everything else in life there is a need to know a budget. If you have unlimited budget I have a $25k mobile observatory with everything already to go. Top of the line gear and mobile. 

If not There are trackers for $300ish that work well at under 300mm. 

Additionally one of the major issues is weight the mount can care. For some of us its the amount of weight we can care. My main astro mounts can carry 250 lbs but they weigh in at 120 lbs so they are a pain to lug about hence my observatories.

For a DLSR setup a Star Adventurer or an Astrotrac are pretty easy to use and track well up to about 15lbs. I'd recommend either of those to someone wanting to "dabble".

Just my $.02


That mobile observatory sounds so cool, is that something you tow?
