I bought one for my XT8 classic and got it delivered last week. Havn't had a chance to try it out yet due to the lousy weather.

Seems redundent if you have an intelliscope.

Thanks for the reply Mike.

Right, it would be redundant for the Intelliscope. I was hoping to use it with a 6" newt on a WO EZTouch mount.

I'd be very interested to hear about how it works for you.

Thanks

Gary

One of our members bought one, seems ok. Not arc sec pointing but easily in the FOV every time if you take the time to set it up right.
