Quote:Thanx for the replies. I am going to do what it takes to keep the 120. I certainly hope that will work out. I certainly won't get rid of it b4 being certain that I am satisfied with sct. I guess we cld put a regular 9.25 into the mix. I mentioned the edge bec i have been told that celestron ha been really carefull with the optical quality on these sccopes, but i would love opinnions on the regular version as well.

Quote:Hi,I have an EON 120 which I have used and used and used for the last 4 or so years. I now want something with more aperture and I don't think that I can afford to keep the EON if I get the other scope (although I will try at all costs to keep it). Assuming that I can't keep it what would you say to a 9.25 edge hd? Would it seriosly out perform the refractor or will I wind up saying hat the views are soft and then pine away for the refractor? I know I have been spoiled (or deprived) but I've only looked through the EON and no other scope over the last 3.5 years.Clear skiesItz

Quote:I have an EON 120 and bought a C9.25 to compliment it. The SCT always showed me more regardless of the target or seeing conditions. I sold the C9.25 when I bought a C11, which I enjoy even more than the C9.25. Now my EON sits unused and I will most likely sell it in the coming months. That's my experience and it might be different than yours.
