Hello David,

Bill Vorce sells them (Astro Visioner) and they are very reasonably priced. You will have to either call or email because his site is not updated regularly. You can find user reviews at www.excelsis.com/vote/astro/telescopes/AstroV/
Also at astromarts forums, there are a couple of threads that pertain to your question. There is a thread about half way down the page that begins with the post "Question about dealer" in which the poster asks about dealing with Mr. Vorce, and near the bottom of the page there is a thread specifically about the AV 80mm f5. Just go to www.astromart.com and then click the forum link and then the equipment talk link. I don`t own one myself but I am considering one of these fast, portable scopes for purchase. Those who have posted about them have made very favorable comments.

P.S. There is also a long thread about the stellarvue. Kind of a brawl really between those who don`t like the scope being stopped down (people who don`t own one and have not looked through one) and those who own them and are pleased with the lack of color for such a fast scope. Anyway, probably more info or different info than you wanted.

Jim
