Anyone have any experience with any of Lunts Universal scopes under the night skies?

Ive got a 130 Universal that will be delivered next month. I know how they preform in Ha , excellent. Just courious how they will preform under the stars.

Seems to me Ed Ting has a you tube report on one of these.

The only thing Lunt would tell me about it was that it was a Chinese made triplet.  As by who and what the specs are on it, they wouldn't divulge. 

 

The very small number of DSO pictures I've found on Astrobin for the MT were all cropped by quite a bit, but otherwise the stars looked very good. 

 

One night, I will set mine up for some astrophotography and see how it does.

Pretty sure they're made by KUO based on the mechanics.
