“What I can tell you is that this telescope gives wonderful contrasty views of the planets and globulars, better than my ex 180 mm APO refractor, and with a neutral color image. The focus is not archived by moving mirrors and the thermal stability of the OTA is surprisingly good, I don´t see any change in focus over time or with temperature change!!”
