Hello Bobtheamateur,

I have wanted to obtain a current technology telescope but the weight and transportation issues of an 11" or larger Schmidt would not be consistent with a healthy back.

I have actually come across pictures of people who mount their telescopes in their SUVs back truck area. I tried to do a net search to come up with the more recent models. I know they sell they them. But I did run across this thread and pdf. Now, I want you to post your own car mounted telescope when you have it set up.
