Anyone familiar with Borg scopes?

wondering if anyone has any familiarity with Borg refractors? Have been looking around http://www.hutech.com/ and on the surface the ability to use a refractor at f4 looks fabulous. Unfortunately a search of Astrobin doesn't bring much up, so wondering if anyone here has ever owned any and what they were like...not many reviews around either...

I'm not sure but I reckon they'll be assimilated.

They've been big in Japan for quite a few years but as far as I know have never really ventured beyond. I used to see lots of great images made by them in Tenmon Guide.

Hi Gary,
I have two Borg scopes and I'm a big fan. They're incredibly light and well made, plus being modular, they can be configured in many ways. Fluorite lens for FL scopes are made by canon optron - same manufacturer as many Tak fl lenses.
If you need info on suppliers, components, setups etc feel free to PM me as it can be confusing.
