Quote:Quote:Looks like it needs a light shroud. Never mind. I read the accompanying text, and it looks like IStar *will* be producing a light shroud for this. It's really quite an interesting concept--not at all necessary for small refractors, but it may increase the marketability of 6" and larger refractors, making scopes of this size much more practical from a mounting standpoint. I surely hope IStar succeeds with this new project!
