Just ordered one. it is in the mail Had to call and they said there were only a few left.
Have wanted to try out a refractor for a while. Have not had one since the 'wobbly scope' of my youth.
I also have an SE 6/8 mount sitting around so will pair it up with that.
Now the wait...
Congrats! I don't think you will be disappointed with it. I've really been enjoying mine. I'm glad you were able to order one from AWB before they are all gone.
Two nights ago, I took my "little" C80ED up to 133x and 200x while observing the Moon (using 9mm and 6mm Orion Expanse EPs, respectively, with a 2x Barlow.) I was VERY impressed with the views! Wow! IMHO, this is one very nice and very capable little telescope.
Yeah, I'm just a newbie and I don't have very much observing experience... BUT, I gotta say, this little telescope makes me smile every time I use it.
