    Yes, thanks for that Abb. I had read that review some time ago but refreshed my memory using your link.

    She certainly was impressed by the scope. I believe my friends one is the same model, although I'm not sure it has the 2" focuser. He's sunning himself in Spain for a couple of weeks, I will have a word on his return!

    The Bible tells us God created the Universe; Science tells us how He did it; And through my telescopes I marvel at His handiwork

    Um....I'm waiting for the owner to return from Spain!

    I can probably get it for 150 euro, so even if I decide I still want a new 5 incher, I can resell easily.

    I'm still working on the N+1 theory!
