      Hi Don,

      Thank you! Yes, I am sure the FD is very good scope. If I had the money,
      I'd go for it without hesitation. I still don't know how much it costs
      in Hungary, but a friend of mine (he runs an astro business) will find
      out soon. I don't plan to engage in any kind of photography with it.
