These are a lot like the old Meade ED's. When they worked well people seemed to really like them. Trouble is, they had a lot of problems. The cell was a big problem. There also was a lot of variability in optical quality. Don't know if it was manufacturing or the glass. Markus needs to do better than Meade and then he may get a lot of happy customers. I don't think I'm going to be an early adopter on these but wait for some reviews or hopefully get a look through one.

Quote:Would these 6" f/8 be like the old Meade ED 6" f/9 scopes?They were OK if collimated, but showed color on Jupiter visually. But so did AP scopes before ED glass.
