To current 55FL F3.6 owners, e-mail me if you are interested in converting to this configuration. I will arrange the conversion kit with special price for you.


BTW, another type of FTF-M57 set will be installed at Grand Mesa Observatory soon.



They plan to use QHY 16200A with BORG 55FL F3.6. So field of view will be based on 200mm focal length with APS-H sensor. If someone are interested in remotely-controlled wide-field imaging on the subscription rental basis, please contact them for more details.  Or this might be the good test opportunity to see the optical performance of its scope yourself.
