Thanks, Allan. Yes, it's a work of art all right. As good to look at as to look through. I will look at some deep sky objects and planets -- and show them to the public -- but mainly variables. It's performing way beyond my expectations. I saw mag 17.3 in the field of RU HOR and the seeing hasn't been great so who knows how deep it will allow me to see.

So it's your variable star scope. Do you plan to turn it onto some other deep sky objects?
