Never got the opportunity to pick one of these up, since at the time I had enough otas in this size range. Now that the barn is almost empty I picked one up second hand for a great price.  It gets here today, and already ordered a threaded adapter for a dual rate moonlite I have sitting on a shelf. Once it gets here I plan on breaking it down to remove all the paint from everything other than the lens cell and give her a nice polished aluminum finish. Will also flock everything before reassembly. I haven't done an all polished scope, and since moonraker is out of the budget it'll have to do!

Looks like it's going to be spectacular, very nice indeed. :waytogo:

 

Thanks Mark!  All done.
