Thanks Henk! Well, quite few users swear that there is a noticeable improvement even for visual over vanilla SCT. Kinda like APO vs achro refactors. I do enjoy APO fracs for visual, so it was next logical step for SCTs. :D

But you are right I am half way to AP now, just need an AP mount. :lol:

That's the Palen-McCoy Wilderness from a "dark site" on the Bradshaw Trail. It's a fantastic area marred only by the lights of the state prison a few miles to the north.

Looks like a wonderful scope Andrey. Congrats!

But I'm wondering how the mailman squeezed it into your mailbox. :sprefac: 8-)

I cought him in time to prevent that. :D

As you know in my previous attempt the corrector plate of 11" SCT was broken from rough handling by UPS. This time I was dreading something similar, but delivery went fine.
