Thor’s Helmet gets up to about 38° here - not bad but at that altitude the window is not huge. Anyway - bottom line …it is available
Re the 130 - I am still using a very small Sony chip with it so the light cone is magic on that chip…but a waste of resources at the same time. Later in the year I will have a bigger chip for it but will not go the full hog, so to speak. Looking at a 16200 rather than a 16803 chip. That will allow me to continue using my Extender & Reducer (that work well also with the FSQ 106). Those accessories fit either scope.
As for the focuser - I just moved the RoboFocus over from the 106 to the 130 and all is good. The RoboFocus handles the 5" focuser of the 130 without problem and SGP just does the usual.
I have not done so much to date with the 130 - the two images on the website for this year show the scope at f/8 (FL1040) and at the native f/5. I hope soon to try it at f/3.6 with the reducer.
So far…I love the scope as it is proving to be very versatile for me and is small enough at the same time, for sitting pretty in a 2.2m dome.
