Ive owned a 60mm H-alpha Pre-Meade and it was excellent, but Ive also looked through and used the Meade versions and they seemed every bit as good in showing similar details on the sun and their prominences. Ive not done a side by side, but the Meade versions seem just as good.
Why do some prefer the Pre-Meade Models. Is this a USA vs China thing, if so, I can understand that since I do my best to stay away from Chineese astronomical gear, which is getting harder and harder to do these days?
Both were mounted to my TV-85 by the way.
Because some people don't like Meade. Some of which they have brought on themselves, but mainly "Meade" doesn't have the panache "Coronado" did. At least the Meade PST doesn't "rust."
