Very nice and some lovely images. I have the 6 inch 603 which is a great wee performer. 

 

How heavy is the 500?? My 603 is about 4.8 kg bare ota.

Ca 3.5kg naked, and size-wise is almost a C6.
Its accessories however are rather on the heavy side: I almost never use the finderscope (have replaced it with the Quickfinder), but the dewshield is handy to balance 2" eyepieces😁
