      Thanks for the warm welcome Tim. I'm really looking forward to using
      this scope for Milky Way wide fields, this if we don't get too many
      hurricanes down here <g>. As I said I'm very pleased with the
      optics, best I've had the pleasure of using - it's all about good
      stars - everything else takes care of itself :). This scope captures
      stars very, very well.

      Best,

      Jose

        Thank you Terry! Great to see you here. I sold my FSQ a couple of
        months back but I still have my little soda straw Borg - a great
        little scope geared for photography. I hadn't been posting as I was
        waiting for the TMB and experimenting with very wide fields -
        constellation wide - with my STL11. I have an image of Taurus at
        50mm focal length that has 23 NEOS in it :). I'm considering having
        a wide field setup built around one of the new Schneider Digitar
        large format lenses but there are some back focus issues.

        Best,

        Jose

        Message 3 of 12 , Mar 2, 2006
          Hi Karel! Great to see you here as well. Thanks for the very kind
          comments. I'm very happy with the optics but I still need to get the
          dedicated flattener resolved. The trapezium was not burned out in
          the RGBs but I have gone to a more "natural and accurate" look these
          days and I feel the Trap should be this bright in relationship to
          the rest of the nebula. The analogy would be a well lit soccer field
          with just a 100 watt bulb in the middle :).

          Thanks again,

          Jose
