Quote:I also enjoyed this review. If I ever get one of these, I probably would not use the intelliscope feature. Too bad they can't knock a bit off the price if you don't want this feature. I just need a bigger light bucket, not gee-whiz electronics. That's just me.
Quote:Thanks for the info!
I also wonder how well the collimation holds from session to session. Anyone notice a problem?

Quote:Dave; great review....2 questions ,if I might.
Was your 14 the new version with the conical mirror?
And if someone bought one, Id assume it would usable as is???refering to the mirror.
Quote:Very nice report David. I recently bought the Orion XX14g and like it alot. I did, however, notice that setup of the upper tube assembly is made much easier XX14g. Orion must have changed the way the trusses connect due to your article because I simply tighten the lower truss poles to the lower tube assembly until they are tight, and place the UTA on top. The UTA fits perfectly without having to juggle it around on top. By the way, is there an approximate price that you can give me that Lockwood charged to refigure the mirror? I am happy with the mirror so far, but I may want to install some premium optics in this telescope at some point. Gene
