Quote:Nice looking rig! I got the WO 2" diagonal for the same reason. Love the way it looks! Nothing wrong with the red dot finder if you don't find it uncomfortable. Most of us move to a RACI or GLP just because we don't like contorting our old backs into the position needed to look through it! -Dan

Quote:When I retired about ten years ago I bought a Nexstar 5i. I subsequently had it Supercharged by Dr. Sherrod following a collimation debacle. It was an outstanding scope -- great optics and dead-on go-to. I only sold it because I couldn't resist getting the 8SE. I often wish I hadn't -- the 5i was a keeper even if I had no reason to keep it.
