Quote:2. The picture shown does not appear to be a 151mm refractor based on the size of the eyepiece shown, and the focuser doesn't look like a FeatherTouch in the picture either
Quote:Knez,if you are ready to spend such money, why not to get Thomas Back designed and LZOS made scope for almost same amount ? 150 F8 As pointed above, the WO listing is somehow strange - the pic is different, the scope is listed elsewhere with FPL53 not OK4 element, and is not mentioned on WO page.

“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
