My Visual Set-up in the Garagatory

Here's my trio (C14, FS102, 6" WF Achro) on the monster (GM-200) in my garage observatory. C14 gives me best on moon, planets, db stars, and g clusters...FS102 when I want the purity...achro for WF and star-hoping. Argo Navis is also a good friend, used often.

Here's the trio

Here's how I isolated the set-up from vibrations...did not have the time to do a concrete pier so I just set up a lower platform for my feet, and tied the tripod to a 4x4 triangular frame.
