My most used telescope is the Takahashi FS-152. Love the fluorite doublet refractors.

This will probably be my new most used scope! All I need now is to get it one a particular Great Polaris mount.

I have a 5 inch refractor, 10 inch and 17.5 inch dobs. The one used the most is the Z10 dob because it gives me some aperture and is still (even at 59 yrs old) easy for me to deploy quickly. I observe from my Bortle 5 backyard, and we make occasional trips to a Bortle 2 area about 2 to 3 hours away. Even then I tend to take the Z10 because of its ease to stow in the van. We plan to either move to or at least buy a second smaller home in the Bortle 2 area, so that is likely where the 17.5 will find its home and be used much more.

My most used scope is my Tak FSQ106N, the flat field view it provides is addicting and now paired with a Leica ASPH and a Losmandy GM-8 (digital drive), it is a simple, easy to setup and use system that keeps me grabbing it instead of a larger scope.
