Great looking setup -- including the travel kit!

Just adding up the weight: OTA 6.25 lbs, binoviewer 2.25lbs, eyepieces about .5 to .8 lbs per pair depending on which ones. Tripod 4.74lbs. Hitch Hiker Astro? 2.5 lbs? Therefore mount equals 6.25lbs and telescope loaded equals 9 to 9.5 lbs. extra riser blocks ? 1 pound? Whole thing 15.5-16.5 lbs.
