A Newbie’s Impression of the Astrophysics 92mm Stowaway (2018 version)

A Newbies’s Impression of the SKYROVER 70mm SA MK III

The problem with astrophotography is that you find yourself always in need for a new setup for some purpose (or excuse) or other, (COVID lockdowns notwithstanding). In my case, it was a need for a portable setup for overseas expeditions, meaning air travel, to dark sites in other countries. Weight l...
