The closest thing I can find there to a 12" RC there is a GSO 10" RC and the Strehl ratio tested at 0.27 ....very poor optical quality.

I wasn't suggesting an optical problem - there is much more to do with opto - mechanical issues that can kill a telescope.

Can anyone remember who was testing the 12" RC?
