Celestron NexStar 8 GPS, Orion 80ED, Meade DSI, Losmandy mounting rings and counter weights (not visible), and Feathertouch focuser. Great visual setup for both scopes. Camera can be moved to the Orion 80ED. NexStar 8 bought new with trade-ins of Orion 8" SkyQuest dobsonian and Meade ETX-90. Used the C8 with my first HyperStar. Guiding not possible with the alt-az mount so exposures limited to about 1 minute. The Feathertouch focuser eliminated image shift while focusing planets through a webcam.
