In theory, this could go in the refractor forum, but the merits of the TV 76 as an astronomical telescope are firmly established.

Here are my brief thoughts on the TV76 as a bird photography scope...This was fun to do. I spent a good two hours or more yesterday morning. Lots of fun...

Thanks for the post and link, Marc.

Late here now, so I'll pay your site another visit.

The Tele Vue 76 is indeed a small scope to be reckoned with.

I'm glad I still officially own mine, even though it's been out on loan to a family member for the past 18 months! :-)

Kenny

I'm glad I still have mine, and for what's it worth, kept the Pronto in the family.
