Still Like Your AT6RC?

Just wondering about the general impressions now that we've had time to use them and form experienced opinions. Not looking to bash or brag, simply honest opinions and possibly some new viewpoints.

For the price its a great scope! My only complaint is the focuser. it can't handle much weight and my favored camera is very heavy. I've been slowly getting moonlites for my scopes as money comes available, so when possible, the AT6RC will get one.
It holds Colimation really well, I've only needed to make small adjustments to the secondary, and that is saying a lot since I like to do most of my imaging a couple hundred miles from home.

Thanks Wavecloud, glad you have enjoyed my pics!
I'm like Robert, the focuser works fine for me since my camera is light, but that might be one thing I would change on it, and besides, those moonlight focusers look so cool on that scope!

The scope holds its collimation very well. I travel with the scope often and have yet to see a shift. I even did a complete tear down to clean the primary and secondary fully expecting to have to re-collimate after re-assembly. I might have gotten lucky, but to my surprise, I didn't have to adjust it afterwards.
