SUN4 Scotts SHORT

"That's a pressure tuned Lunt 60 Nick. I used Richard Unger's LS60 Tilt tuned version for a few weeks, which had many faults with it. The view was pretty awesome though."

DOBSON 33 Inch

"Our local Society had a 30" F6, it was a nightmare to use, needed a 15 foot long step ladder to reach 45 degrees elevation... it was sold to somewhere in Bulgaria, now we have a 30" F3 in the club instead."

"Looks to be about 5" or so. There are plenty with larger aperture (ISTAR brand for example, 7, 8 or 9 inch refractors) but they tend to be only Achromatic, with plenty of false color."
