Hi Don,

Thanks for the info regarding the parracor and sips. I haven't really used thr type 2 parracor I had.

The new scopes I am getting will have sips. Can you elaborate regarding moving the sips lens? Do you mean move the whole sips unit away of the scope focuser?

My apologies for my basic questions.

It cannot be brought to focus using a SIPS focuser without moving the SIPS lens away from the ideal position.
