It's a pity the 694 is so darned expensive - guess you get what you pay for though.
Funnily enough ....I have one of these H694's with the external cooling fan, plus an SX filterweel, SX OAG and Loadstar sitting here just waiting for an adapter to arrive from Orion Optics to mate it with the F3.8 AG12. I plan to use it for galaxies and planetary nebulae

I shouldn't need flats or darks but we will see....
