Thanks for taking the time to explain., Paul.
I guess I was wondering whether the purchase of a much larger telescope just leads to less work done with it. Is there a sweet spot at 10 " maybe?

I'm personally interested as I am planning to build an observatory for imaging in the next few years and if a 16" RC on a an EQ8 would seem to make some sense as I am only interested in imaging galaxies and would like a good image scale.

I didn't go clearly go far enough with my wondering as to what the reasons- I didn't speculate that you just hadn't got around to posting a picture taken with it - at least in the telescope review thread...and it would be easy for me to have missed the other images.

Can you give me some links to the other two photos- would love to see them.

You make wild speculations about what is going on and you really don't know what is going on do you?
