I would like to start a thread for owners of the Japan made, Vixen outsourced for Celestron and Orion C102's. To me one of the best 4 inch achro's ever made, especially for a F 9.8.
You can get one of these OTA's for around $300 to $400 when they are for sale, but I think the owners are keeping them. I read the reviews on Ecxelsis, and everybody gives them excellent ratings. I know that I love mine, crystal sharp images. Mine is the Celestron version, and I have it on the astro tech voyager mount with the tall vixen wooden legs. I do not have the capability now to do pictures, but maybe one day soon I can get a picture of mine on site. It has been painted a beautiful matte black, finder also. The only draw back was the black paint would scratch easily, but this matte black makes it look even better. So if you owners would like to share how your C102 does for you, I would like to hear.
