i'm currently on the list to recieve a new 10" portaball. i've decided to wait and purchase at a later date. it will be completed in july. the normal wait is around 10 months. the price i locked in on is $3000, $200 under the current price. i've put $1800 down and will sell my spot in line for $1800 or best offer, leaving $1200 due upon completion.
the specs for the telescope can be found at the mag 1 website. all the reviews i've read are phenomenal; and from my personal expierence, my home made inexpensive 8" reflector gave far better astronomical views than a top rated apo refractor that i later bought, so you can immagine what one of the top rated reflectors such as the mag 1 can do.
thanks for looking, bob robertson
