I submitted a Cloudy Nights review of my new TeleVue-76:

So far, this is the only TeleVue review entered in the Cloudy Nights refractor review contest.

Merry Christmas.

Excellent review, Aaron.

I've had a TV76 for several years now and agree it's a real gem. I use it primarily as my RFT (although it does take power very well) along side my Orion 100ED and Celestron C5. Don't think I'd ever part with this baby!

Just a side note. I also used the TV76 on a Telepod/Bogen 475 but the balance issue when going from heavy to light EP's drove me crazy. So I sprung for Tak Teegul (Lapides Modified). That turned out to be a wonderful mount with all three of my scopes. Silky smooth and no more balance issues grin .

Thanks again for the good review.

Clear Skies to all from Seattle,

Phil
