      #5568408 - 12/12/12 10:45 PM

I pulled the trigger today an ordered a C6 SGT along with a 10mm Luminos 82 degree EP, a GPS and a Polar align scope from OPT Corp.
It's back ordered right now, but hopefully will ship within a few days
Hopefully the cloudy nights will clear up when it gets here, but then this winter in western Washington

That scope will keep you busy for quite a while. Good going and good luck to you.

Congrats! Having to wait is tough -- I know, I'm waiting on a mount myself, and I must check my email 20x a day looking for a shipment notice!

make sure you remove the lens cap the fist time you use it, and make sure you put it back on properly at the end ot the night. I think the first or second night of my first scope I put the cap on, picked it up to move it and apparently didn't have it twisted on all the way. it went flying and got a bunch of scrapes.

I knew it wouldn't be mint forever, but I thought it would make ti through the first week.

I just picked up a C6 myself. I think you will like it. Don't know why you need a polar scope though. I have 4 EQ mounts and don't use a polar scope in any of them. The 'All Star' polar alignment routine in the hand controller works just fine.
