Great review of the 120ST thanks.

There are a lot of reviews of this scope and they all seem to agree that it's a hoot to use, handy enough to take anywhere, big enough to do a pretty good job resolving some GCs and smallers OCs. Interesting you chose the motorized focuser instead of a Crayford. And good point about the red dot -- I find RDFs pointless, but as you note this thing is a big finder with the right eyepiece anyway. Have you tried using it for AP?
