HI, I am in the market for an Parks 10 inch F5 Newtonian tube and was going to put on Losmandy G-11 Mount. As far as Planetary  performance is concerned with this short focal ratio, are the images large enough to discern good detail seeing conditions permitting, or do you use a barlow? What kind of mounting system do you have for this optical configuration? Any information concerning performance of these optics would be greatly appreciated, Thank You, Thomas Carolus

avery nice mirror. Star test shows slight surface roughness. Foucalt test shows correction right on the money!
