Quote:Is ES considering making any models that are wider than 100 degrees? For example, how about a 20mm 120 degree 3" ep?

Quote: So maybe SCTs are really the only market.
I'm thinking FC would be way too apparent for use in a refractor. Could be wrong, though.
Quote:Funny that no one is talking about the extraordinary mass of this piece--a lot of people are going to have to rethink their mountings before using it.

All MY reflectors are apochromatic. I am personally covered with infrared detectors and emit at 295 Kelvin, 24/7. If I were to recieve a spin entangled photon before you recieved its twin, MY photon would predict your photon's spin. Every time. MY family's lineage goes back over three billion years and has a whole branch of science devoted to studying it... The most Quotidian of observers
