Is this possible or are these separate and distinct OTAs. I know Starizona makes the HyperStar but does Celestron make a similar arrangement?

RASAs are purpose built for fast speed, which is an image quality advantage over modified F10s, which use different optics.

Nonetheless, still "similar". Flexibility/cost tradeoff really. They are distinct OTAs. OP might enjoy the RASA white paper (and EdgeHD one) here:

Thanks for the link. I had forgotten about the Celestron White Paper.

 

BTW, which side of 101 do you live on in Morgan Hill. I hope you weren't to close to the fire!
