Hello,

Anyone had compared the Televue 76 telescope with others telescopes for double star observations? In reference to CA and colour fidelity.

It is a good telescope for this work?

Thanks,
Paul

My TV-76 is particularly well corrected and I enjoy viewing double stars with it. Unlike several Chinese "ED" scopes, you can crank up the magnification on a TeleVue and not have breakdown above 200X. Rigel is a beautiful split, almost makes me tempted to have a go with Sirus, ha ha. Color fidelity seems to be very good, I compared it to my AP Traveler and coloration of stars is similar.
