Each and every one of my Chinese Dobs have had fine optics, some better than others but all were competent and impressive. My 8 inch unit was freakishly good allowing me to hit 400 in Pittsburgh city skies regularly. That scope was aquired as a stand in for my Vixen refractor long wait repair time and I ended up selling the Vixen and adding a platform to my Synta Dob. After flocking and eyepiece upgrades it served me happily until I felt I was ready for more aperture but even then I regret having let it go.

Ahhh this makes me wish that Discovery could keep it together. The poster child for what you are wishing for and me too. They even did custom configurations for reasonable prices. I was really getting geared to take up a longer focal length 7 inch newtonian, or something that you don't see much of on the market. Mine was going to be specialized for planetary in my viewing conditions.
