Excellent review James.

I did consider one of these babys but I thought it might stretch the bank balance and the marriage a bit too far.

Cheers

Well, mine is finally on its way and should be here just after the Easter weekend.

I'm hoping it is going to finally put my telescope addiction to rest.
I have wanted one of these for as long as they've been manufactured and now, my dream is about to come true.

Only problem is that I somehow cannot make myself sell or get rid of any of the scopes I've got already, so now I'm sorta stymied (and the missus is now looking at 2Carat solitairs with glee

Mebbe I should put the 16" in my backyard observatory and use the 14"as my grab 'n go???

Nah, I'll get e hernia grabbing and going with that weight.

Maybe I'll just have to bite the bullet and sell either the 14" or the 9.25"..........nah!!!!!!: screwy:

I'll justify it somehow, but then the friendly little men in white coats might offer me new jacket with buttons and belts down the back and loooooong sleeves:screwy :

Truth be told though, I'm like a little kid just before Christmas counting the days and not getting a lot of sleep.
