Ken, were these taken with the PST and double stack? Really nice images.

By the way, how does one go about getting a second etalon for a PST?

No.
I basically used an external SM60 fitted to an ED80 but added a "PST Stage 2 mod" to the rear end at -200mm inside focus.
With the SM60 fitted up front, the effective system was a 60mm f10 ideal for the PST mod.
This arrangement then gave a 60mm DS H alpha scope.
Hope this helps.....
