Great report! I think there's a lot of curiosity about these collapsible Skywatchers in the US where they are harder to come by (perhaps a deal between Orion and Synta territorially).

In any case, 0.5" splits in a mass-produced 12-incher is a testament to the fact that Synta does produce some very high quality glass these days. GSO too, for that matter.
