I've had a chance to use a couple of Teeter scopes at star parties and was always impressed. The fact that he does "custom" builds is an added bonus.
And as for reviewing Zambuto optics.... eerrrr, thats sort of like trying to give painting pointers to Michelangelo =-)
Glad you got a dandy of a setup and are happy with it!

Nicely done review, and I don't need to tell you that your taste in telescopes is impeccable.

Since I have a Teeter/Zambuto on order, I just had to read this review.
It was nice to read a review that was also an observing report. I have no doubt this scope will be used. A lot.
It's interesting that double stars were high on the agenda as a way both to test the optics and the trackability of the scope (since high powers were used--4mm!).
All in all, some good writing--made me feel like I was there and using the same scope.
Also makes me wish I was taller and my back stronger--I wouldn't have to drive as far to find darker skies.
Nice review, Dave.
