Robert Newman: This is roughly a 12.6 inch telescope. A used Celestron 14" Schmidt-Cassegrain without mount can be had for roughly $6K. While an f11 optic, it has considerably more light-gathering capability (23%) than the $33 f8 lens featured and is a fraction of the cost. As for the $180K used Canon telephoto, you can buy a large refractor scope tube assembly of similar size and f-ratio optic for $25K or so although you would have to wait for the right deal (i.e., no mount).
I agree with you Robert. Both have the same Schmidt-Cassegrain design. The 14" Celestron can also be use with a 0.7x focal reducer for a 2700mm f8 as a result.
LeeStar: A shell.
ShKen: Liked it very much!
Thank you ShKen, I am going back to Nepal next month...can't wait!Have a nice day,Mario
RuthC: This is an excellent picture of reeds in calm water, and IMO should have place much higher in the challenge. This capture is exactly what I suggested in the challenge theme, which you actually read, but many other entrants failed to do. I really like the simplicity and minimalism here. Ruth :-)
Thank you RuthC,I feel very confortable with the ratting.Have a nice day,Mario
Interesting challenge...can't wait to see!
