The Tak 102 has only 816mm FL so the PST mod will only result in 81.6mm effective aperture. :(

See, its not that I do not want to cut it, but more like I am fearful of screwing up ^^;; also, I would like to use that scope for other things as well besides just Ha, that is why I do not want to cut. After talking to all you guys, seems andreahaku has done the least with his scopes to achieve the full mods. Looking at Omni 120XLT.

Yes walter, I did look at the Takahashi 102 initially, too bad my salary is in USD and not Yen hehehe, you have some great shots going there bud!
