The new mount!

This new mount is very cool (and heavy :-)!

Yesterday, I got the CG-5 mount. Took me an entire evening to assemble it. And then I wanted to try it out. But I couldn't set it up ... and then it was too late.

Today, I first replaced the finderscope with the original starfinder. And then I figured the whole setup out: 2-star align, polar alignment (without Polaris!), 2-star align. That was it! And all objects smack in the middle of the eyepiece. Can't wait to try out taking photos tomorrow!
