Quote: It's certainly not as pricey as the FSQ or NP101. (Actually the NP101 is pretty close at 3995).

Quote:I'd love to see some images from it using at least an 8300 sized chip. Could be a formidable competitor for us imaging folks. Would be even more interesting if a tailored reducer/flattener were to accompany it, somthing taking us into the high f/3's or low f/4's?

Quote:Anyone know who made the objective? Is it Russian or Chinese?
Quote:Yes, and it didn't escape my notice that a scope almost identical to my SVR90T appears on the Sharpstar website...
Clear skies, Scott my scopes: a few refractors (50-102mm), 2 Newts (4.5-12"), and an 8" SCT

Quote: But > 1 inch difference in FL is quite a large "fudge factor" if the lenses are truly the same. I dunno.
Quote:Just in case you, like me, hadn't heard this: Stellarvue is offering a new 100mm f/5.8 quad for $3800. Looks like an attempt to directly compete with the NP 101. And you can get it on a Paramount MX for only $14, 495. . .
