Now that IS a good idea.   I don't have an obvious path to roll such a thing down, but it is worth thinking about.   My full kit must entail 5 trips - at least.

Aratus, my friend I uploaded windows 8.1 update / fix to my w8  pc and can't get on the forums with it . So, I'm down on the astro 04' pc that has more bugs than beds. ha ha my station will at least put my pc higher so I won't be leaning back and reaching for the keypad to see the the screen. I think it will be a great asset to my astronomy quest. Your friend ronnie

I've got all kinds of ideas but, not able to do them all. You can do wonders with duct tape and cardboard, and it's cheap also. If there's a problem we'll find a solution.
