Hi Jeffrey,



I did post links to sample photos. Here you go:



(1) www.perseus.gr/EquipPage/equip-ota-rha-01.jpg

(2) www.perseus.gr/EquipPage/equip-ota-rha-02.jpg

(3) www.perseus.gr/EquipPage/equip-ota-rha-03.jpg



As for the AP160, it WILL not get lonely since it will be moved over to

my Mach1GTO once I get some counterweights for it. In other words, two

AP scopes sitting on two AP mounts assaulting the night sky during each

available evening. Paradise!



Anthony.
