Here is the place to talk about all those equipment(Telescope, Mounts, Eyepieces, etc...) you have. Not sure which scope/eyepiece is best for you? Trash it out here!

Check out the 2 videos featuring Celestron and Meade scopes at NEAF2016.

I like the Majel Barret (aka Star Trek Ship Computer) voice in the Meade Autostar controller!
But from the looks of it, Celestron is out-innovating Meade. Their low end Goto scopes features so many convenient and thoughtful features... and that power bank may finally be able to power our heater too! Check out the Celestron video. It gets really interesting in the second half!

Good idea of using objective cover as phone camera bracket
