I think if you offered another run of the 180mm EDF's and offered a choice

of either f/7 or f/9 the run(s) would sell out very quickly. By offering

both focal ratio's both the imagers and planetary nuts like Rich N. and

myself would be very happy.



To get the process going Rich and I have decided to denote our hair to

Roland. Mine is a bit more gray then Rich's though ;-). Now we need some

volunteers from the imaging folks to denote their hair as well...

Glad I still have some hair give.



A 206mm f/8 would be very nice. Or, a larger aperture would

be outstanding. It would be good if it could still be used on

a 1200 mount for visual work.

I could be persuaded to change my 180mm request for a 206mm f/8.

Sssh! If Roland put up Dutch auctions for each run of his scopes they would

only go to the very rich -- rather than the quick and patient. Then there

would be the speculators...



Regarding this thread, I went for the 10" Maksutov-Cassegrain and am not

interested in paying more for a smaller diameter. Its not that I don't like

refractors. I'm very happy with a 130 f/8 that I was lucky enough to get.



For the 7-8" size I think an 8" f/14.6 Maksutov-Cassegrain would be what

would excite me.
