Bye, bye mirror flop. Well, sort of. It works nice. And the fit and finish is typical WO. When Wo delves into the SCT / pseudo RC OTA's, that is going to be real interesting!
Yep that's an American Strat, Martin D-28 and an Kramer Ferrington in the back ground. :grin: Want a lick?

That looks real nice Luke. I tried to get one from OPT but I moved too slow, they were sold out.

How do you like the 9.25? This scope has me confused? It supposedly has the largest CO of all the Celestron cats but is always stated as having the best image. I wonder if I should upgrade from the 8 to the 9.25. $$$$$$$$$$$$$ :bawling:

I haven't got much chance to use it yet, but so far so good. The focuser will help out on the imaging. I hope it doesn't introduce too much vignetting. I will popst a review in the equipment forum when I put it through its paces.
