Hi Andy,

I’m glad to hear that the RC system and focuser retains good correct focus over a reasonable time as mine will be operated from a separate control room from which I also control a C14. The GSO RC will also take part in Supernova searching so maintaining good focus over long periods lasting several hours and hundreds of images, will be a big benefit.

I plan to reduce the focal ratio to better match the optical system of the LISA.

Anyway, thanks Andy for your experiences with GSC RC and I will certainly relay my thoughts if I do proceed in getting one.
