Hello All,
                I have just renewed my membership after almost 20 year hiatus. During that time I satisfied my desires with a small ETX-90. I acquired a damaged Sky shed with all the electronics, a supercharged 12 inch LX-90 ACF, several cmos and ccd cameras, cables, monitors, software, etc. Knowing that some day i would have time to build my dream observatory. This past summer I cleared several 60 foot maple trees and prepped the site. Backhoe and sawmill are ready. I would like to do visual and dso using the lx and refractor off off the same 12 inch concrete pier. Mounting the sct on the top and triplet off a perpendicular gizmo I will fabricate. I attached a picture of a design I like and a rough plan of what I would like. Give me your opinions more question to follow I am sure......
