I have also ordered a fancy case to take it to dark sky sites.

The field is 42mm diameter unvignetted but is still sharp after this. The FLI 16803 would vignette slightly at the corners.

I will be patient and not get too excited as I have a lot of work ahead to get up to any sort of competence.

Ah yes, I knew that these guys fitted the FLI Atlas focusers actually, I should have mentioned it to you but I didn't know about the upgraded tube

The vignetting and correction is as we suspected then so that's cool

Man it is even better now...I'm as excited as you I am sure
