Re: Going Unguided With a Long FL Scope?

Yeah...I was wondering about a 130 mm guide scope :) Sorry about the stroke - good to see your still at it!

In the end I went and ordered an Optec TCF-Leo which should allow me to use an OAG with the C11 Edge - if I want too.

I'm impressed! Your guide scope is ten times the aperture of your
imaging scope! I'm sure you meant something different. :)
Awk! I can't type any more, and apparently I can't proofread either. The diminished typing ability is due to a 2007 stroke, so I usually proofread things three times to compensate. Missed big-time today!

My guide scope is 60mm aperture @ f/5, and the imaging scope is 130mm @ f/7.

Thanks for the heads-up.
