wow...this is good. Kudos to Wee Kiong!

Actually I wanted to loan your LX200 and try imaging with my new Meade DSI imager....but guess I am not qualified for it due to the ownership of my 5" Nexstar 5i.

So can I loan the PST instead? Then I can check the coating issue also....

You are right, you are overly qualified for the 7".
Let me you know if you need the 12" & I can let you have it to play for a week or 2. Just give me a review.

I will reserve the PST for you.
Let me know when you want to collect.

Thanks Wee Kiong.

Review for that 12" is not a problem. In fact I feel like taking your 12" and do a supercharge on it. The optics on that 12" is very good...I verified that while doing the collimation for the scope. The only quirk is the image shift while using the focusing knob. But that can be smoothen out with the EZ focusing gear from Peterson.

The only problem with your 12" is how to fit that into my car and transport it safely. And I am afraid I can't bear to give it back to you once the 2 weeks is up!!

The 12" with foam support will just fit into the boot of my Corolla XLI.
Bring down your car and we can try. The 12" & PST will be available after Friday. Let me know if you want to collect them. Think there is a Q building up for the PST.
