Battle of the High-End refractors

A head to head between TeleVue 85 and AP Stowaway refractors gave some surprising results...

Wild Card 006 "They're Big & Ugly - Can You Learn to Love Unobstructed Reflectors?"

Wild Card 006 "They're Big & Ugly - Can You Learn to Love Unobstructed Reflectors?"

A well-made apochromatic refractor is a thing of beauty. But, if you're willing to put up with a large telescope with a relatively narrow field, you can get absolutely color-free performance from an unobstructed reflector.

Wild Card 005 “Is There Any Other Way to Get Apo-Performance on an Achro-Budget?”

Anyone who can afford one has an apochromatic refractor. And almost no one who has one wants to get rid of an apo. But no everyone would pic an apo over getting junior those braces he needs. Telescope designer Rick Shaffer presents some alternatives.
