      I have an ST-10 on the FSQ-106 and an ST-8i I picked up used that
      will go on the TMB. I also have an ST-9, but the pixels will be too
      big for either scope, so it will be on Astromart soon. If you don't
      have a copy of Ron Wodaski's "The New CCD Astronomy", get one before
      you spend anymore $$$.
