With Mars coming, it is nice to have the sharp contrast provided by an unobstructed view. And it is even better when it has no cooldown issues, even transitioning from a warm house to a cold evening.
A long focus refractor has excellent contrast, while maintaining good and affordable color correction. Because of the long focal length, the tube is a little longer, but the color correction is greatly improved, while keeping the cost reasonable. And with Mars coming closer, it is the perfect scope for this Summer, as well as for the years to come. It is an older Edmund Refractor, made when Edmund was still supplying very good refractors.
