: : Thanks for the info. I've got a Celestron catalog that says the g8n is an f/10, and I went to their online catalog @ www.celestron.com/g8.htm and it says the same thing? I'll have to do some more investigating.Thanks again.

The G-8N is a F/5 Newtonian. If deep sky objects are your interest this scope should work fine; for planetary viewing, it would be less than desirable. There's a G-8 that is F/10, but it is their Schmidt-Cassegrain, which is a good all-purpose scope. Best regards, Bill B.
