Previous posts didn't leave me with conclusive information. I'm wondering if anyone has reached a strong opinion about the Televue O-III versus the current Lumicon O-III. Assume a good dob in the 12"-16" range.

Thanks,
Doug

From what I have read, my money is on Astronomik. Check them out. I am will be getting one shortly.

Hi Doug

I also found the Astronomik better than the Lumicon. The stars just seemed sharper.
