Thanks to you for a Great Telescope

Thanks to you for a great Telescope, I am extremely happy with it and have been having some excellent results, and recently I added the ES ED80 to my family!

Good resolution and color but bad mechanics

The image appears good but it's not a Takahashi and doesn't have the price but better than doublet for sure. The focusing mechanics is poor and wobbles while focusing and very hard to keep stable no matter how the screws were adjusted. It appears the gears are not constructed out of normal helical metal material and focusing feels spongy unlike other refractors I have including APO from Meade. I bought this scope a while ago but just used it tonight so it is in new condition and not sure if I got an early version. All my eyepieces require extension tubes for both 1.25 and 2" unlike my other refractors or reflector SCT. Extension tubes wouldn't be a big deal if it could focus better but it is not stable. This is probably worth the price but don't expect the quality of more expensive APO refractors. Because of the poor mechanics I doubt that the mechanism will last long. I may consider to buy another focusing assembly if one is made for this scope.

What a great scope it is

I have a 127 as well and the more I learn about this hobby, the more I learn what a great scope it is.

Source of great pride!

I love that scope. It's a source of great pride!

Sweet optics.

I agree with everything Jim Brant said below. The attachment of the focuser to the OT is a bit sloppy with all these screws you have to adjust. I wish there was a firmer mechanism like that on the Stellarvue products, which uses a ring like mechanism that you adjust as needed. Also, the finder scope leaves a lot to be desired. That said, optically, the OT is wonderful. Last night I had tack sharp views of Jupiter up to 256X. This is a sweet instrument at a very reasonable price. If you're interested in a larger refractor at a good value, I can recommend this instrument.
