Question for Dan, then. Was the one in your pic a 150? I do remember talk of a 200, but they're uncommon. I would think that they'd be decent optically, but I've never viewed with one myself.

Ther's very little about them on the interweb, I did see mention that only four Lomo Astele 203 (8") units were originally produced but couldn't see any mention of the mount style. I guess these might have been an initial trial run of what has now developed into the current 3 versions offered - OTA only, GEM and a more traditional fork mount model, the 203-EL.

I don't own this scope any more. I miss it. My back does not.

Yeah, you do remember all those moments when you thought your pumpkin cannon was going to pop a few things while you were moving it around

I honestly don't remember the size of it, but I think the one in the pic was a 6", based on the diagonals of the finder and primary.

I'd have put the little 60mm Edmund Voyager refractor in the frame, but I felt that it would spoil the purity of the photo... lenses and all, you know...
