Quote:I will chip in at this stage and mention that I have one of Istar's 8" F12 R35 slim lens being made for me at this time. This was for a self build but may go for Ale's TCR arrangement. Had a Vixen ED 6" and currently Intes MN86 & 78 so am looking forward to comparing the views that the different optical systems will throw up.(hoping the G11 will suffice for visual on the Istar!)Paul
