Well, I kept my word and brought the XX14i out for about an hour to a totally overcast skies but several people who I had committed to say the scope. It was set up next to the clubs XX12i but no views to compare it with tonight. Later perhaps, when skies are clear. I am so sick of the current weather pattern! It's summer!!!! The western U.S. should be under a high pressure dome that forms almost every summer. Sigh. Skies are looking good tonight so I'm heading out for first light to a dark site tonight. Gavin, a member of SLAS and on Cloudy Nights was there and checked out the attitude and azimuth motions. I asked him to send me an email or PM on his thoughts with permission to post them here or I hope he just posts his comments here.
Here are some images:
The XX14i does not have its shroud on, the XX12i does.
I'll try to get closer images next time.
EDIT: IF you have questions on AZMUITH or Altitude motion on the XX14i, please read Gavin's comment. Thanks!
