Check out these guys. I have their 80mm triplet, grabbing the 107 triplet from them next year. Field flattener covers full frame even on my 80mm. No import duty to pay on Telescopes but have to pay GST so factor that in.

Added a couple of shots from their 80mm and my Sony A99 on an HEQ5 Pro mount.

Thanks. That Evoguide is actually available locally through Tasco retailers now, the price is $349 i believe, or maybe it was $379.
There is a thread about it on CN, where people are trying to turn it into an imaging scope, adding focuser, etc.
I am still leaning towards the Astrotech ED60 with its FPL-53 Doublet, the price is $369 USD. First choice would have been the WO Z61 but they seem to be out of stock everywhere.

IMO the Evoguide is pricey considering the 72mm Evostar is not much more.

Have you tried contacting WO? They are based in Taiwan and Iíve found them promptly responsive.

Dunk, i did email William Optic about the out of stock Z61. They finally replied that the Z61 will be back in stock in two to three weeks. I have already ordered the Astrotech 60ED, which seems to be a clone if the WO and the TS60, but a better conversion price. The Z61 is nice but i need to get this sorted out before i go to Qld in April, and be ready for Wirunna.
So Astrotech it is.

I got my Z61 from OTA in Canada, and they have stock, it was cheaper than WO direct.

My 1st light post is in this section, it's super wide, even using a cropped sensor. The image I posted is also cropped to hide some bad alignment
