It's a real shame as the've obviously gone to a lot of effort but that effort appears to have been misdirected. I was really looking forward to seeing this scope and perhaps actually buying one. I love the image quality of the mk1 FT and pm2 but I don't have the time or inclination to learn either.
This mania for big gaps is just inexplicable. It's an utter red herring. It's exactly the same as assuming a wall clock is more accurate than a wrist watch just because it's bigger.
If they could just make the MK1 more stable it would be a winner, no need for all this weird gearing etc.
