    Its now 2016...you must have had 1 clear night in almost 7 years to post your impression of the Orion Shorty Plus. Probably a few patient people like me curious of your results.
    Cheers

    He also hasn't been on the forum in almost 7 years...

    Please mind the necro posting, Don. This is outlined in the Astronomy Forum Rules and Terms of Service - Part One, The Legal Stuff in the section discussing the revival of old threads.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Let's put this one back to rest.
