Yeah its about time lets do it. weve been trying for a couple months now. Several misfires and ended up at Flat Iron. Be good to be at a site where you have to use a light to see your star charts. Sentinel makes an 80mm into a 200m and a 200mm into a 400mm, compared to closer in sites. Or more correctly, it allows you to take full advantage of the aperture you have (or didn't know you had), and you shall be astonished!
