Hi-has anyone used a TMB 92mm light refractor, and is it good?

I have the TMB 92ss and love it.
I am no expert, but I can't really fault the optics.
From what I understand, the TMB92-L has identical optics to the ss, the only difference is no feather touch focuser.
In case you haven't seen it, have a look at the attached review and this link (http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CHUQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cloudynights.c om%2Fitem.php%3Fitem_id%3D2434&ei=sKWxT_fTGaqriAf6yZjvCA&usg=AFQjCNEvy0mbYQVkv2TnEYMJs_SM9yC MZQ&sig2=hqLDYhJfR_h_k5Mwi_ltew).

Thanks for that Al. Thinking about buying one and wanted an opinion

I also have another review from a different astro magazine, specifically for the TMB92-L, which is in pdf format but is too big to attach here.
If you pm me your email address, I can email you a copy.

The optics is good but then, aperture fever soon took over.
Good for lunar viewing but not for DSO.
Better to save money for at least a 120mm refractor or larger.

At f/5.5 it is fine for imaging DSOs, only widefield stuff though.

Thanks for your input, guys. I used to have an Astro-Physics 6" EDT many years ago, and would love another big refractor, but health issues mean I now have to go small and lightweight.
Would love to read the review of the 92mm light, Al-I have sent pm with my email address-thanks very much!
