Yeah, I'm only interested in the Edge 9.25 or 11 because I'd like to use the focal reduction with my large 100 degree eyepieces and I can't do that with the tiny 0.63 ficL reducers of the XLT models. The Edge 9.25 and 11 SCT's both have the 3.25" openings for these larger Focal reducers.
Its gotta be the Edge SCT's and the cost of the 0.7 reducer doesn't mater.
I dont care where the focal point is moved to, I'd just like to have a C11 with a new focal length of 1960mm or a C9.25 with a focal length of 1610mm so I can still have the aperture but I can go wider with my large 2" eyepieces with no vignetting.
This is why visual users purchase the 0.7 focal reducer.
Any reason why the Edge? I'm planning my next scope and either a u210 or C11 of some flavour. Interested on your thoughts of the Edge versus standard C11. Flatters stars at the corners with the Edge HD but what about cool down as the corrector lens is sealing the central tube?
Also the flattener is going to move the focus point, so I can imagine incompatible with BV usage.
