Users of this telescope shout loud about its capabilities, one in particular dedicates a great deal of time to just see how good he can produce images from his ‘scope. This telescope has the optical capacity to ensure you will both see and photograph objects way out of range of smaller, less well made with lower quality optics. For a real treat, increase the optical efficiency even further with an upgrade.The performance of the 1/6 PV wavefront optics guarantee you very good images indeed but, optical upgrades are available for each model and are featured in the Buying Options table below.
The telescope is transportable but, you are starting to become limited by transport methods as it needs the passenger seat folded down in most cars.
Having almost 4.5 times the light grasp and way over double the image detail, it is relatively simple to appreciate that with numbers like that, success is guaranteed and amazement a natural response when using this superb instrument.
