I am very interested to hear how it performs. I have read reviews that say that the newer China scopes put up the same quality image and have better coatings. They come up for sale here in Germany every so often, but I've never bought one because I'm not sure if it is worth the premium price they ask for.
My first gen C102 HD and CG4 mounts were a big let down in 1997 vs the Vixen made stuff. I bought the very first CG5 as well and it was about junk also. The optics in the C102 HD had more of a green tint and just was cheaper made.
Once the CG4 and 5 got the bigger legs the mounts got better over time around 1999-2000. Never had a Vixen scope let me down and i have had around 30 i would guess.
So far this scope looks like it was stored away for around 25 years or you went back in time and bought it new. Cost $1400 about with shipping on the paper work in 1996.
All i know is so far with a 3.2mm the double double was 4 nice round balls. Only my very top end fracts looked better like my Taks and TMB 105/650. Them FS78's are hard to beat. So far color is not too bad vs a 6" F/8 achro on the planets or moon.
A 2" foucser would be nice to have.
