Okay...I'm cheating...it's not my scope...it's my architects.
He just recently took it out to test the tracking.
I was pretty impressed...
I hope our house turns out that nice! smile

Linton,
What is the aperture? What is the focal ratio?
Thanks,

Linton,
This is a gorgeous scope. Thanks for showing it to us.
The design strikes me precisely orthogonal to that of the Normand Fullum scopes (Normand was interviewed during the NEAF 2009 coveragea by that other forum). Interesting contrast of design concepts.
