Yes I really like the RC and KAF8300 (QSI) combination except for the star sizes. The resolution is very good but some of the brighter stars tend to bloat.

There is some chance I will be taking a look at the 10" when it arrives. I am told that there are 10" scopes on the next shipment. This came from Jim Sheng. Apparently 300 units shipped to the states a month ago. The point though is that this will have a narrower field of view again to the 8". It will probably have a reducer that will work to reduce the focal length a bit, however I am uncertain that this will combine well with the KAF8300 sensor. Something like the 6303 might be better yet.
