I have been giving the Orion Optics UK scope the CT10L a hard look am/ was interested in buying one.
I contact OPT Telescope (a pears to the US dealer there might be more I have not found them yet.
price list on OOUK site Price at OPT Markup
CT10, 10" f4.8 1700 lbs. sterling =$2,270 $ 2,939 $669
CT10L, 10" f6.3 1900 lbs. sterling=$2,538 $ 4,439 $1,901 !!! ???
I called OPT about this and the guy on the phone thought it might be typo. that was 2 1/2 days ago I have not heard back.
I checked a German dealer and he had the CT10L at $4,100.
Anyone have any idea what the heck is going on?
Want to recommend at 10" f6-f7 OTA of superior quality?
The CT10L is a nice scope and it is very light weight but not worth $4,400!
Thanks in advance
