I have a Celestron 8 on AVX mount, and I have a Meade Lightbridge 12 dob. I am the director of outreach for our astro club (csastro.org), so mostly take the Meade to star parties (like tonight and tomorrow).
We own 35 acres of dark sky land about 2 hours south of Colorado Springs, and every summer we host upwards of 300 astronomers at Rocky Mountain Star Stare (rmss.org), on that land. We have speakers, kids activities, and lots of great stuff. I was able to pull in Pluto through my C8, the skies are so dark there. Getting the Clipper was in large part an effort to support my star gazing, and I have a great wife!
