The vent solution in the Edge absolutely is not sufficient, even with fans! They help a bit, but thats it. Most commercial fan solution merely are not solving much of the thermal problems.I realize that the Edge SCT’s have vents but fans or at least a port or two where fans could be added as an aftermarket accessory, should be on the back plate behind the mirror.
I think the Edge scopes have cooling vents and it's easy to get third-party fans that work for them. It should be a stock feature, like it is in big dobs, though.
Meade did exactly that with their 7-inch Mak. So why not with SCT’s?
And @treadmarks: If a C8 would cost twice the prize, it probably would have way better optics with lower tolerances, the feeling about a C8 would be diffetent, more stable, worth the prize (if they do a good job).. It would be on par with for example Mewlon, and a lot of people buy Mewlons..
