Our club uses one of these in our loaner stable. I purchased the instrument ( used) and found it to perform just about the way I expected a 90mm f/11 achro would. Mechanically there were no problems. I tested it with the stock diagonal in place and used a Vixen 80mm f/11 as a comparison.
The only thing that mystified me about this scope is that it seemed to always take a bit longer than the Vixen to adapt to ambient temperature. I could never determine a reason for this since the construction of the two scopes (Vixen/Meade) was just about the same.
