we have a good proposal for Barry, following the application of olive reduce central obstruction, which reduces to 37% (baseline 41%) through the primary F2.1.

Another very important thing, we really emphasize the quality of their PO.
I'm really married with Starlight (I have three), I did put a 3.5 ".
but ultimately their OP is top, very simple, but effective, and we just charge it, they will try to adapt the engine on their OP Starizona Focuser for not changing my config.

That is one big cat! I'd advise using a filter when viewing Jupiter. David

Wow, this single telescope has taken Orion two years to manufacture? If so, then they sure enjoy taking their time about it.

Yah 2 years? The 20" Planewave takes 120 days to make and they happen to have one in stock ready for delivery. http://www.planewave.com/index.php?page=1&id0=0&id=2

I give my finale order in april 2011 with an AG16". The AG16" is finish, So the delay for ODK is one year, the finale Weight is 100 lbs ,better for my paramount.

Yes i see Planewave , but for the same cost , i can have only a 17" ,and in Europe, i can not have a Optic certificate from Planewave (when i ordered this ODK).

So put 30000 $ without certificate , it's not for me.

OOuk give for this ODK a certificate, but it will go directly to www.airylab.com to confirm the optic certificate
