Astronomy - what do you have for a telescope and any comment

I have a celestron short tube newtonian 6" and it is great other than I do not have a motor mount for it yet. To get the motors it is about another 130USD and I do not have a decent camera for it although many people are trying web cams.

I would like to get a digital focusser as well. there is quite the challenge when trying to focus on something.

But I would highly recommend this scope. I am tentatively looking at a larger one. I would like to get a 14" but not settled on it because of the weight and size.

We have a pretty good telescope that is about 24". The problem is that we live in Chicago, so there's not really a lot of room to get out and SEE anything, though when we used to do work for the county over in their forest preserves in the middle of the night, I always liked to bring our telescope with.

In West Virginia my aunt has a telescope, and it's SO much fun to look there. The only problem I had was that while we were looking at jupiter, there was only about a 10 minute window before it fell behind the mountains, so that was kinda sad.

I still have my old Meade 4500 (4.5" newt, equatorial mount) that I use from tme to time. The optics could be better but it was cheap when I bought and I have a decent collection of 1.25" accessories for it.
