Depends on your frame of reference. Your C8 has twice as wide a field as a C14 at 3900mm!

Thats nothing - I have a meade 12inch ACF that is riding on a CGEM. Will I try imaging with it? Might give it a shot with an OAG, but I will stick with the WO 90 megrez for the most part

It's really amazing how much larger a C11 or 2120 is than a C8 or 2080. Reminds of sailboats, add four feet and there's twice the bottom to clean and the dockage doubles too!
