Yes i see Planewave , but for the same cost , i can have only a 17" ,and in Europe, i can not have a Optic certificate from Planewave (when i ordered this ODK).
So put 30000 $ without certificate , it's not for me.
OOuk give for this ODK a certificate, but it will go directly to www.airylab.com to confirm the optic certificate

SLODAR - this is not the task of looking at blondes at the beach, and ODK 20, in this case, not a means to Flooding the APOD

i give you new of my Order.
The ODK was delivre begin of may, and i gone to Airylab ( www.airylab.com ) to test optic.
OOuk promise me LV/4 PV with 45kg, i receive a telescope at 62 kg and see the test :
You can see the serious of this compagny !
OOuk propose to pickup the scope and remake a miror, i wanted refuse, but my lawyer advised me to accept.
So OOuk take back this "*BLEEP* scope" and delivre me 2 month after (july), i tested again with Aitylab
But the miror have only astigmatisme , no spherical error, no coma. We see that the miror is just maintained by center NO MIROR CELL. this astig can be corrected by a cell
I decided to not send back this scope and to remake all mecanic with a more more professional compagny, SKYMECA ( www.skymeca.com ), we decide to build a miror cell 18p in INOX,
and to maintained by center but with a kneecap on CG
you can see all mecanic change here : http://www.felopaul.com/skymeca.htm
with the cell 18p see the optic test :
and the scope in my observatory :
the shroud was not the best choise , so i decide to do this with carbon fiber
Since November (finish mecanic) no star on the sky, no first light on this time
I will give you news when the weather will be better
to conclude : you aderstand that if someone ask me my point of view of OOuk , i will not be friendly !

Looks like you were their Alpha Tester (a Betta would be better than what they sent to you)...
Great redesign, however I wonder why you did not just return the scope to them and buy something else.

It's the firts product, so i had good price, with this money back , i can pay 16" only like Officina or RCOS (more small)
and when i see the quality of this optic without astigmatism, with my friend of Skymeca , we know that it's easy to remake the mecanic, optic not !
The main difficult, is to have a good optic DK ! i don't want a RC F/8 or 9 . Planewave, i see also bad scope test with bad optic, or with fix primary too, can ne be collimate...
So i had good optic 20" DK F/6.8, the mecanic costed me nothing, taked 2 month (week end).

If at least the price was right everything calculated.
I hope to see some images when you start using the scope.
Thank you and bonne chance!
