    Description

    I started the cat's eye using the svq100, which was a REAL stretch for it.. then i came across a MN190 and pounced on it :)

    much better match.. of course, i've never imaged with anything other than a refractor, so to say i was in for a "learning curve" would be a huge understatement..

    thankfully the Atlas doesn't seem to mind the extra weight at all ( where's some wood.... )
