Flag ship scope with mediocre assembly

I received the first copy of this telescope with severe pinched optics. In fact, it was so severe at only 2 degrees Celsius that the scope gave color abberations on cmos sensor and poor stars visually. Telescopes Canada was great in sending me a second copy they had in stock but unfortunately it also had a pinch visible although not as severe. Stars look just ok but not impressive for the price. Needless to say if I had to do it all over again and I was in the market for 6 inch Apo I'll be looking at other brands such as takahashi. The telescope maybe a fantastic summer scope but the cold ( mildest winter we had in a long time ) might be too much for it. One star is about right for this asking price. Yes, even on sale.
