I bought this scope as a portable alternative to my C-14 and as my first APO. Although the images are great for a 5" scope, they're not as good as those through the C-14 when seeing is good. The C-14 is harder to set up, but the gains in the image are worth it to me. I'm not an expert on testing optics, but as far as I can tell they are good. Using my smallest eyepiece (meade 6mm) I could detect no false color on the moon or jupiter. I don't own a barlow (don't really need one with the long focal length of a C-14) so I couldn't use more power. Jupiter and Saturn were very nice last night through this scope and the trapezium in M42 was very clean. The focuser is very smooth. The scope is clean. There are a few scratches on the viewfinder. It includes an 8X50 viewfinder, baader solar filter, and meade tube rings. New price on these scopes is $1700 + shipping. I'd like to get $1300 and I'll pay the shipping in the lower 48. I can e-mail picures of the scope. E-mail with questions or offers.
