He won't find anything cheaper, lighter, and more powerful than what he currently has, so if he wants lighter, it can't be "powerful". He could go with an Orion 4.5" Starblast, which weighs only 13 pounds, but it would not be "powerful". In other words, he's asking for something that doesn't exist.</p><p> </p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>
