Quote:Didn't get here quick enough. My suggestion would have been a used William Optics 110 Flourite triplet. I've seen a lot of them for well under 2K and they do make very nice imaging scopes. Having said that, I'm looking forward to your first galaxy with that new 5" monster seeing that the galaxy season is upon us! David

Quote:Can the built in flattener models be reduced Timm?I was an early adopter of the all original GT-81, but didn't bond with what I considered to be a below average focuser and sold it.When I saw they were getting into the built in flattener versions, the ability to reduce was my biggest question. A least with the original I could reduce it with the TRF2008, and flatten it with the AT2FF, both worked very very well. If the focuser was up to snuff I'd still have it. The optics were quite nice.Can you reduce them, have you tried it?Gary
