Putting together my Orion 80mm ED system was an enjoyable and educational experience. Here's how I did it with some suggestions to consider and some pitfalls to avoid
How does the GPS platform stack up against a Losmandy GM8. Are SCT's inferior to other scope types?
Exceeding the mount limitation.
Is the Televue NP101 the perfect 4" APO?
A solid performing telescope at a bargain price.
...Despite its small aperture and limited light grasp, this 2.4" provided some wonderful, high-contrast views. Using a 9mm Nagler type 6 wide-field eyepiece that generated 40x, I found the oft-observed Double Cluster in Perseus a wonderful sight...
A side by side showdown between two great scopes...
