Other advantages

The instantaneous close at speeds up to 1/1000 so you can stop a slow moving animal.

Flash support up to 1/200 for hotshoe mounted or 1/2000 if you want to use the native flash to trigger an external flash optically. (Thinking better Beamer )

I agree. But with an aperture of 6, 1/1000s is not so often used. On the other hand, electronic shutter is very very very slow (1/13s) : it's the great default of the Q/Q7/Q10/Q-S1 ... But you can even stop the move at 1/16000s (but with elongation or deformations due to rolling shutter).

Flash isn't really usable with the electronic shutter. But I use the ED80T-CF to shoot at 20~40m, flash is either not usable

Took this video of Saturn using the Orion SkyScanner 100, with a 2x barlow lens, 15mm eyepiece, and Pentax Q with 01 lens and SteadyPix DSLR eyepiece mount. It's a 400mm telescope but I'm not sure what the final mm length equates to. Not NASA quality, but I think it's cool for a less then $100 telescope.

Would this unit have similar IQ to the CF Orion?https://www.astronomics.com/explore-scientific-80mm-ed-apo-refractor-telescope_p17432.aspx

Hello crewl1,

I don't think so. This reference ES is equivalent to the Meade model (used by PhenixJC). The main difference concerns the glass type : a sort of FPL51 for the Meade/ES, and the FPL53 for the Orion. FPL53 does not show any AC at all during observation and about 1 pixel using a Ptx Q7 (1.85Ám).

The price in Europe has increased significantly during last weeks ... 1044 w/o VAT ... In 2011, the price was 780€ including VAT...

It's good !
But not as good as FPL-53 for CA
