Prepare to be delighted.
The Takahashi Mewlon series is noted for their colorless, contrasty, refractor-like imaging ability. It receives praise from anyone who looks through it, owns it or writes reviews about it. This 10 inch Mewlon 250 is no exception.
This scope features excellent collimation and a variable speed electric focuser that moves the secondary so that there is absolutely no image shift what-so-ever.
The optics are untouched. There is no vignetting. In fact, this scope is so well engineered, you'll find that your eyepieces are the weakest link in the optical chain.
Mars, Saturn and the even the moon offer jaw-dropping details that were not visible in my 12" LX200. Thanks to its generous 10" aperture and high contrast, the scope also permits you to see deep space objects that would require averted vision in smaller APO's or larger SCT's.
Imagine looking through a high quality 6 or 7 inch APO refractor- that's what awaits you (only much brighter) through the Mewlon 250. These are the opinions of Cloudy Night reviewers and other owners.
You will not be disappointed!
