Quote:Thanks,guys! Having owned a Coronado 60mm externally double stack telescope,I am wondering what what would the sun "look like" visually at the eyepiece using a Clestron 8" with a off-axis mask that has a 63 mm clear aperure using 12-40 mm Plossls and a rear mounted .6A HA filter? I rarely see SCT pictures that show the image seen from the eyepiece of an SCT,mostly,if not always,from refractor scopes.Would I be disappointed comparing what I have seen from the front mounted Coronado,to what I will see from the Celestron 8"?Would spending ~$3000 using the SCT scope be a step down from what I was used to see from my Coronado 60mm DS?Any pictures using SCT would also help. Thanks to all, Bob
