Lots of aperture for the money, this nicely designed scope exceeds all of my expectations.

Meade AR-5 OTA (LXD55 version)

Posted by Eric Esworthy 09/22/2004 12:03PM   (Reviews/Telescopes/Refractors)

A "Luck of the draw" achromat? Or just good quality? Maybe both... A nice visit with a new friend!
