    The weakest link in the optical chain is the large nut located directly behind the eyepiece/ camera. - Gabrielle
    Ya gotta keep this Apo/Achro thing in some balance of perspective. Apos are awesome, but long focus Achros aren't that far behind them - Siriusandthepup (CN)
    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind. - Jon Isaacs (CN)

    Mine too my friend....
    At least we can clean them when it is cloudy. The Lunt did arrive in good order - 5 minutes before leaving to catch a plane.
    Eyepieces Etc sent it nicely packed. Solid and well built unit - very much looking forward to using it.... someday....
