Punched the button late last week and ordered a new SV80ST.
Primary purpose will be for AP imaging of DSOs. Presently use the SW 120ED Pro and the C8 for lunar and planetary. I will mount this on the new, used GM-8 that I got from Santa.
Just wanted to get this thread created. I will upload photos of the setup and issue updates on it's first light and imaging and visual performance.
Prior to punching the purchase button, I called over to Stellarvue in CA to discuss my purchases and vet out if I was ordering all the correct parts. Alex, one of the regular employees answered the phone and stated that they were just going into a staff meeting and asked if he could call me back. Sure. An hour later the phone rang and who had called me back? Vic Maris the owner! We chatted for over a half hour about my plans and purchases. He stated that they were working on 80s just then and mine should ship out in about a week.
I'll keep you guys posted.
