Yes & what about a 70mm flat field?
(that's if you could buy a camera with a 70mm chip)

Hey. It's an Astro Physics. By the time you get one, they'll have 70mm chips!

Within 5 years there will be 70mm sensor chips
if they aren't here already.
I doubt that any telescope could evenly illuminate one.

I think the 3600 is currently in stock Only takes 26,000 beans however

In stock - wow - normally you'd have to wait 2 years
for Astro Physics mounts.

Astro-Physics increased their production rate a few years ago and economic conditions have probably decreased demand during the last few years. For the past year or two you could probably have had the mount of your choice during the next production run for that model. During recent years AP have generally done a run of each model every 12-18 months (the Mach1GTO runs seem to happen most frequently).

That's good.
By the way - I don't think we even have a 3600 GTO
in the whole of Australia - at least not by an amateur.
If I ever built an observatory one day - I'd love to have one.
