This is for all the "pristeen" refractor owners. Yes, it works quite well. Only two baffles? Yep, but well placed though. Getting a good view of Saturn right now and I'm going to Jupiter next. The lens tests out quite well so far. It's a 6" F/8 from Antares in Canada. Just having fun grin

Do they offer a 102/f6 ?

Ha, is there a wait list for these.

Keith, is the rear flange custom? I'd love to find something like that for my own SkyBeam/OpticalBench project...

I still have to control the stray light for my daytime artificial star testing.

Very cool. Do you have dimensions on your baffle locations?
