Wonderful and very informative thread!!!
Hi Luka,
Yes- after all the amazing, informative advice offered here so freely and generously I’ve ordered a GSO CF RC8 from Andrews.
It ticked most of the boxes for me.
ie: Budget, FL, Weight, OTA length, my camera pixel size etc. maybe a tad slow but my SFFR70APO flattener/reducer mates with it so that will help speed it up & reduce the FL a bit.
(Another Astrobin user has this same combo working well too)
Hoping it arrives soon so I start get it collimated/shakedown/sorted before the star party at VicSouth next weekend!
Then as Rally rightly mentioned, I’ll need to review pec & pa procedure to get the most from my mount at this FL.... and when Santa comes, upgrade the focusser to a Feathertouch.
Once again, thanks to all who have contributed to this thread, much appreciated!
