Well, I suppose that's better than the zero replies I got the first time around.

Too bad. My 8" classical cassegrain is a great scope.
I'd be interested in hearing reviews as well.

and another here
Only the APM link is in English, the rest are in French. Try Google Lanuage Tools or Babelfish for a translation.

Clave is no longer in business as Clave; the Paris company Astronomix had purchased the brand name and used it for this new scope.
There was a lot of talk in France surrounding this scope a few years ago, but it turned out to be at least partly vaporware (it appears only a few 166mm scopes got out, and the larger models only existed as specsheets on a website), and astro-imagers complained that images were sharp, but that the illuminated field was narrow (about 1/2°, narrow given it's a 6.5" f/6 scope).
