Travel scope for a trip to Africa...

Posted By Doug Dolginow

Dave,
I have traveled with a Uti6, Uti8, and Tak Sky 90. I still go back and forth between the Uti6 and the Sky 90 on a UA microstar with light berlebach tripod. Under dark skies, the small refractor does pretty good. However, the best combination might be good binoculars, which you will use every day for animals and would be good at night, and a Uti6. The danger of the Uti6 is that the views are very good, so you can get lost in concentration, which is not good in Africa, because that is when animal tend to eat there...

Ken's Rings

Posted By Doug Dolginow

I have had numerous sets of Ken's rings and they all flake off. Functionally, I have never had a problem, but, do not count on them for good looks. I stopped buying rings from him, because he does not accept returns. So, be sure of what you want before you order. I suspect he might accept returns if there is a functional problem.
