Quote:Also, what are your thoughts on the noise of the scope. I got rid of my CPC 800 due to the resonating noise and slow top speed. Have Celestron improved these aspects on the new deluxe version?

Have Celestron improved these aspects on the new deluxe version? I've never heard anybody else complain about slewing speed. At any rate the top speed has NOT changed. Likewise, you're the only person I've heard complain about noise issues from what is IMHO a nice, quiet telescope.Suffice to say, if you didn't like the standard CPC, you won't like the Deluxe, either.
Quote:Well, the NS8i is faster, but it's 5-degrees/second, not 6. Do you need to get there in a hurry, or do you need to get there accurately?

Quote:Well, I got the 5-degree spec from Celestron...they ort-to know. Maybe. If you need quieter than the CPC, what you want is a Dobsonian.
