    My 10" portable dobsonian by Sumerian Optics. I think this scope is the ideal compromise between aperture en portability. And it's virtually invisible when packed up which makes the missus very happy

    Here you see it in it's natural environment somewhere in between Hamburg and Berlin, my favorite observing site.

    It's a 9.5kg telescope and it packs up so small you can actually take it with you in the plane as hand luggage.

    Well, the Sumerian I posted back in #76 has been sold. I am now rocking a All-City Nature Boy singlespeed cyclocross instead :-) but.... I had an old 8" from the seventies or eighties in the shed which I pulled right into the 21st century! Here it is. The bag is a temporary counterweight to balance the scope out. Happy with the result and "Explore Amateuristic" look :-)

    EDIT: I now know the mirror is a David Hinds 8.5" mirror. Which is kinda cool.

    Nice setting, I am guessing that was for Total Eclipse?
