It worked as an attachment. I see that one can also post external images by using the Image tags

You can also post in the 'Gallery' and add a photo from there.

Hi StarBru. Sorry to get back to you so late. I bought this as a "Build A Scope" on 4/2011. At that time there was some confusion with the Intelliscope box shipped with the different needed washers from the standard model. Also, I was short one of three screws, so I left the vertical bumper stop for last. I was lucky in that I had an exact replacement in my hardware drawers. Other than that, it has been an excellent telescope, and a super performer on the DSOs. I hope this helps StarBru, and the best of regards.

If you put that Dob on the truck, can you chase comets, or meteors....
Just call me Geoff....

I do what I do because I can, and because I want to.
It doesn't mean I know what I'm doing :mrgreen:
