I just came inside from some stargazing, and was able to do a very detailed star test of my GTF 102.
From what I can see, it is as perfect as my eyes can tell. This is a really beauty of a scope. I had to let it cool down about 30 minutes because it was only 20 deg F out, and the wind chill is about 11, so I was only able to tolerate about an hour outside but I am very pleased with the optics.
And the new DDG rack and pinion focuser is amazing so far. No slipping, even in the cold, and I had it all the way at Zenith, with a 2" diagonal and 2" 33mm SWAN eyepiece.
