The other night I had this scope out in the Washington DC area and had the finest viewing of Saturn I have ever had. This is a amazing task for any scope in these light polluted skies. Thanks Roland for making such fine telescopes. I pushed this scope with a TV big Barlow and TV 5mm radian and the view was still tack sharp. The view of the rings was breathtaking. The cloud structure of Saturn could be seen clearly. Looked like the pictures I see so many people submit to Astromart. It only proves what so many have said so many times. There is no substitute for quality optics. Makes me lust for one of the newer AP scopes.

Thanks again Roland.
