I have no way to test before buying as its a disembodied mirror. That's a good reason to pass I guess.
There's a 12" Apertura on craiglist I'm looking at instead. A complete scope for nearly the same price rather than just a mirror is a better deal.
If I like the 12" Dob I can always go ahead and build around that mirror, then replace it with something in a longer F-ratio eventually and extend the trusses/tweak the balance.
Never owned a DOB before as I didn't like the ones I have used, but I have an appetite for larger aperture.
