Just a side note:

Vixen has launched a 55/303mm fluorite refractor and will launch a reducer/corrector for this tiny one - the net result us a 55/240mm f/4.3 astrograph with 95% illumination at the extreme edge. Expecting the entire field of view to be very well corrected.

This is the one I am going for when ready for the market - just add a wide T-adapter and (hopefully) get a small but first rate astrograph.

Was looking for something longer than my 2/135mm lens, and nearly ordered a 4/300mm lens. Happy now that I am a bit slow...

This little thing will not be cheap.

Sounds very good.

There is also the Takahashi FC60.
