Have just taken delivery of my new C11! Transparency has been bad of late, I still have some work to do dialing in the collimation and at present I'm having to use the stock focusing knob ... can't wait to install the Feather Touch replacement, that's for sure.

None-the-less, I'm seeing hints already of the extra detail that will be available at this larger aperture. This was especially evident in my visual observations of Jupiter, with far finer detail evident in the belts.

Good things to come I hope!
