My first impression is excellent.  The WO Star 71 has awide, well illuminated, flat field of view, exactly what I was looking for.

Hi Ralph,

Greg here (I purchased your Orion 110 ED and traded my C11 for your 12.5" Lightholder mirror Dob). Congratulations!

I have come to the conclusion that the WO Star 71 also will be my next scope for AP. I ended up selling the 110 ED (to much CA for AP for my tastes), and replacing it with a Tak FS-60CB (which I won in a raffle, and has way better color correction than the 110 ED, but still a little too much for my AP tastes).

 

Can't wait to hear how it performs under darker skies.
