As I was passing by here again,a thought occurred to me about the PST everybody seems hot on.If the PST is around five hundred dollars,and the Solarmax 40 is nearly three times that cost(I think),and they're both 40mm aperture,and both ostensibly do the same job,what exactly are you paying for with the Solarmax?
It's an obvious question that has likely been answered a dozen times already in this forum,but I only look in here occasionally.
Another question.The smallest 'scope I have is a Sky90,were I to tread the HA path what would you get,having written out the 90 and 60mm filters on grounds of cost say.An SM40/BF and the little Tak.,an SM40'scope or a PST?
I admit these are idle but recurring thoughts which suggests to me I maybe working up to emptying my pockets again.
