Welcome to the Au Sable Forks Observatory. Located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains of New York. My main scope is an 8" LX-90 with a William Optics Z-66 piggy-backed. Additional scopes are an ETX-70 and an ETX125. I also have a Siebert 1.25" Blacknight Binoviewer which I find excellent on the Moon and Planets.
I recently (2008) added a Coronado PST which I inexpensively piggy backed to my LX90 with a Meade 50mm finder scope ring assembly. Now with both the LX90 and the ZS66 fit up with Sunspot filters I simply slide off the finder scope and slide on the PST. I now have a combination Astronomical/Solar Observatory.
I've been in the hobby only for about four years now and am finding it more and more enjoyable all the time. I plan to dabble in Astrophotography as I progress. One achievement I'm a bit proud of is having completed the Messier Catalog and having the Astronomical League award me the Messier Club Pin and Certificate # 2304.
Thanks for looking and Clear Dark Skies to All.Rick Blaisdell
