    Thank you, JG.

    One could also add under the "Kokusai Khoki "Multicoated Ortho" , the Astro Hutech brand, and University Optics branded a version of this newer 'flat-top' style also. I still haven't figured exactly which manufacturer produced the Meade Research Grade ortho's, but I would suspect it to be the same.

    Hello Johnny my friend,

    should you need help, I can jump in, but I am not authorized to translate Sven's reports.
