Thanks all for your comments, Rik believe me is a common telescope. Real I not believe any more the l(lamda), if is true and you can see that at the final captures. I believe only a good collimation and a good seeing this can give good results.This is my personal opinion!!!

George, if you haven't done do already, I suggest you send your photos to LPOD/Chuck Wood. They are certainly LPOD quality.
