    When I unexpectedly became the possessor of a Celestron NexStar GPS 9.25″, I realised I had a mobility problem as my last scope could be carried under one arm and fit easily in the boot of the car!. I wont mention my age but moving and assembling and dis-assembling it is a real physical struggle! So here is my solution for getting it out onto the decking from our sun lounge.

    Next job is the train the Welsh Terrier in picture 1 to tow the kit out and in.  By the way I put it out this morning to take the photos and decided to leave it there the take a look at the moon this evening.  Within  a couple of hours the clouds swept in the the rain is falling!
