Roland used to make a very nice 7" f9 triplet. These are lightweight and are easily supported by a G11 mount with extender.
Mine gave an awesome view of Mars last opposition. Here is a picture of one from Scott Squires Web Page, where he has additional info on this fine scope.

Being a planetary observer, I would really like to see a 7" F/10ish APO. I wonder if there is enough demand to get one on the drawing board. TMBs Signature line sounds like it offers a whole lot of performance for a reasonable price-any chance they or someone else would produce such a scope?
