      I saw the FLT 110 at RMTC and I was quite impressed.  I just bought a little Megrez 80 and it's a fine little scope.  I have a Tak FS 102 and I'm tempted to sell it for the FLT 110.  Do you know if the optional field flattener is also a reducer?

      I have been waiting for the FLT110 for over a year.  In the meantime I satisfied my needs with an FSQ106.
       
      Time to sell the FSQ.

      Just curious.  Why two four inch scopes?

      My new William Optics FLT110 arrived last night.  However, the fedex guy
      came a little late for me to head up to MB.  It will see first light tonight
      from the driveway.

      The scope came packaged in its own beautiful aluminum case which was double
      boxed as normal astro shipments usually come.  First impression - its much
      bigger then a 110mm scope looks like it should be.  And MUCH heavier.
      Easily heavier then my FSQ106 by about a pound.  This thing is built like a
      tank.

      Serial number:  #2001 - the first one available to the public.  :)

      The scope itself is an oil spaced triplet APO with the lens designed and
      manufactured by TEC.  It comes with a beautiful retractable dewshield and a
      big 4" fully rotateable focuser, just like the FSQ106. The focuser has about
      4-5" of travel, which should accomodate most eyepieces quite easily.  I also
      picked up a televue everbright 2" diagonal, then realized I don't even have
      a 2" eyepiece.  doh!  I'll have to fix that today.

      I hope to shoot an image from my driveway with the scope this evening, but
      that may wait until Saturday when I have more time.

      Rob
