Hello Slawomir,

The 414 has a lot going for it but I'm concerned about pixel scale with my scopes, 1.1 and 2.2 arcsecs/pixel for the 10" and ED80 respectively.
I haven't had a chance to test it but seeing conditions here are visually way better than Darwin, stars are tight little points instead of extended near nebulous objects.
From what I've read for photometry I should be aiming for oversampling by 2-3 times the seeing...borderline for the 10" and the ED80 would need defocusing for sure.

If my FL was closer to 1500-2000mm the 414 would be well in the race, thanks for the post.
