Indeed, I am told he does. There are also many of the Cult of Nagler who
do, and if these people are dob users (or any other scope that doesn't
track all by itself), then I can certainly see the reason, as you point out.

OTOH, Don Parker is not really terribly well known for his visual
observations. I'm not sure what he uses in his eyepiece projection rig.
