Hello all

I am really excited to introduce myself to you all
I work in Los Angeles CA and live in Lake Havasu City AZ, home to the London Bridge
In Havasu the skies are very clear and imaging is great

I ordered my DDM60 just a few days ago, I guess I'm in the wait mode for about 3 month but from what I read .... Well wort the wait, reading all the manuals waiting
I have a Celestron 9.25 Edge HD with an Orion 80mm short tube as a guide scope
My cameras are a SXVR-694c imaging camera and the Superstar guide camera
I presently use the CGEM mount but found it a bit weak for the environment in Havasu, wind is sometimes an issue and it's not permanent so I need to realign it for each use

After reading the inputs in the ASA Forum, i look forward to conversing and sharing wit all, great forum.

CLEAR SKIES everyone

Jim Gardner
