Since you don't seem to be visually inclined anymore, I would suggest cleaning house with the exception of FSQ106EDX; you could channel your recouped funds into a high-end 130-140mm APO for photo-visual use. If you'll be doing imaging primarily, you could also look into salvaging/consolidating your mount platform as well to something like Mach1/900GTO. Again, I don’t know most of your current equipment, so use your discretion accordingly. Thx
Quote:If you don't intend to take advantage of the C11 Edge focal length for high-res/planetary work, then moving to C8 makes sense given your other described constraints.
