Chairs

#1

Post by mikemarotta »

Stand ... sit ... stoop ... kneel ... bend ... all night long and never confortable. It is a hassle to disassemble the telescope in the dark in order to lower or raise the tripod legs. Life would be a lot easier with an adjustable chair. And as long as I am wishing, it should have fold up wings on the side that are little tables like the ones on lecture hall seats.

I never met a scope I didn't want to keep. "My God, it's full of stars." Searching the skies since 1966!

I wouldn't go back to anything else.
