Purchased this for astrophotography but no longer have time. This scope was designed to give sharp, chromatic aberration free, flat images to the edge of 35mm film. It provides pinpoint star images less than 15 microns. Open tube design eliminates dew. Rack & pinion focusing eliminates image shift. Ed Ting says "catadioptric fans should take a close look at this scope since it does offer a few advantages compared to your standard issue SCT. It costs more, but you get a lot. The build quality is much better than most mass produced SCTs. Stars are indeed pinpoints all the way out to the edge of the field"
