Looks like an EP400 next to that massive scope, it is really one of my 350v3's. I also have the Dew/Light shield attached.



A size comparison next to my oldest son, he just finished 3rd grade and is 4'7" and 80lbs. The tripod legs are at their lowest setting.



From the command center.



Looking at the 11" mirror inside. ;\)



Still waiting for first light and these darn thunderstorms to go away to get it out. It has built in GPS and auto tracking using 1-3 star align technology. Has 40,000 objects in the database control as well..... \:D

Thanks guys. \:\) This baby weighs about 90lbs assembled, however, the scope/fork assembly comes off fairly easy and has ergonomic handles to make it easy for taking outside and setting on the tripod.
