Been wanting to try a longer focal length achromat for a while.
As these seem to be getting harder to find I checked with my dealer to see if Antares (Local here in Canada) still stocks these and low and behold Antares/Sky Instruments had one in there warehouse apparently the last one and they offered to upgrade the scope from a single speed to a dual speed focuser.
I'm very much looking forward to trying an achromat as I have never owned one before.
I'm realistic about the performance as it ain't no $2500 Takahashi but it has a different almost nostalgic appeal to me.
I'll update this thread when I get the scope and share my thoughts on it.
