12.5"f5 custom dob woth goto and tracking using Mel Bartels wonderfull scope control in the alt/az mode. after doing a 2 star init and with a couple of keystrokes,stand back and watch the scope move to the selected object.
3 years old Parks primary gives wonderfull views of the Veil nebula, Novak mirror cell and spider, JMI focuser,shortube 80mm finder, dew heater for finder/eyepieces,primary cooling fan. At F5 and quality televue eyepieces I have never needed a coma corrector!
