Quote:Do you have any interference issues on that Versago?
Quote:Mr. Bergeron,The main reason I bought the Omni XLT 150 last May (2012) as my first scope was because of your review. It was excellent! As a matter of fact I still refer to it.I did update the mount to a GPD2 in part in anticipation of buying a larger OTA. My only real complaint of the scope is the slop in the focuser, which has become more apparent with the GPD2.So, now I formally thank you for your informative and well written review!
Quote:Interesting! This looks like it would be a great grab and go scope. I don't have any mount for it.What would be a good but simple mount for this scope? Something like the mount in the op photo? What is that one?

Quote:Quote:Do you have any interference issues on that Versago? It cannot go 90 degrees, maybe 80 degrees if my memory serves me well. It is like a dob on a tripod and with degree circles. Very smooth, light, transportable and easy to use.
Quote:I should have added to my above comments regarding your conclusion that “a diligent observer could occupy himself for years with this scope” is true, and that I have enjoyed this scope immensely.
Quote:A 6" f/5 newt on a simple Alt Az mount is simply a joy to use!

Quote:I am able to easily bring to focus WO binoviewers on Vixen 130mm f/5 and Orion 150mm f/5.Note: these short newts needed an extension to focus "cyclops" style.

Quote:How long did it take for everyone else to receive their telescope? Mine is still "processing." I ordered it 10 days ago.Mike
Quote:I suppose I should have called instead of ordered online. It's seems that call-in orders often get higher priority than online. Just sayin'. That's my prior experience with other companies.Mike
Quote:Locoman,What exactly do you mean by "free shipping?" You bought the 6" OTA by itself with no shipping charge? Woodland Hills has free shipping for orders over $200. I just added enough small items that I needed anyway to top $200 in order to avoid shipping charges.Mike

Quote:So I had to buy $11 worth of other goodies to get free shipping. I don't see this as a big deal. eh...Mike
Quote:They were selling the scope for $189 with free shipping as a special for a while.
