    I doubt it. The finish on the dew shield is mediocre, the cradle
    looks crude and so does the black paint. The thing weighs more and
    there is no need for it. This is of no value, especially to imagers

    The tube does need rings but the block really isn't flimsy.
    If you want to see flimsy on a scope, check out the Celestron 9.25"
    and the rail system it attaches to the Advanced Gem they have.

    It's still an 80mm scope. Of no interest whatever to me unless
    they gave it away ........... oh I might go $25.

    I am still waiting for some evidence as to whether the Celestron ED-80 has
    optics comparable to those of the Orion ED-80. I have heard a few twitterings
    but nothing definite...
