Wide field scope.

Finally decided on a wide field scope. I had the Orion ED80T before and have been searching for a replacement to compliment the Takahashi TSA120. I am going to get the Stellarvue SV70T IS. The fov should go nicely with the QSI690. Probably order straight through Stellarview.

Just telling about getting a new mount and scope has brought in the clouds :rain: :rain: :rain: At least no rain in the clouds so far.

Re: Wide field scope.

I received the SV70T today and the report that comes with it says Strehl .992 :jumphappy:

Now need clouds to go away and still waiting on the Moonlight focuser.
