It seems the old thread has been retired to the archives, so it's time for a new thread.
Here is my C11, mounted on my G11.

My cat collection consists of this cute little spotter. The primary must be about 50mm. Judging by the reflections; it looks to have a true corrector plate as opposed to just a window. The secondary is concave to provide a correct image I expect. The fixed eyepiece provides an advertised 30x.

Here is my C11 Edge HD mounted up in the observatory. The ADM dual saddle and extended length CW bar from Criterion are great upgrades...
