New PHOENIX WFT 204-6 in production now! new

Dear Friends,
Just wanted to share some photos of the newly designed and produced Phoenix WFT 204-6 Wide Field Refractor. This beast is best for a low power (0.25D by the book) wide field views of Milky Way, DSO and comet hunting. This first unit has shipped to Denmark with two more available (40 day waiting time to finish the lens). So if you are ready for a huge, truly excellent custom made Comet Hunter, talk to us now. The price is way below the competition producing similar quality instruments. We have just added new super flat black inner powder coating and transparent opal effect blue powder coating. Enjoy!!

Interesting! Gotta keep an eye out for this one on astro-forum.dk or at the star parties.

I pulled this image from the Istar Scope Club web site. The second scope is a 6 inch but not sure what focal length.
