Hows the optics of this Doublet compared to TAKs, as Borg says its a Pentax made objective ?Since the basic scope is an F/6 which focuser option will be good for purely
visual use especially widefield ?
I am on the TEC 110 list but as its production is uncertain and since light weight/portability is a must i am keeping this as an option along with the yet to be released vixen 100.

The Borg is actually lighter than the TEC 110, 3.5 vs 4.5 kg. The Borg is a fair bit larger than the TEC though, about 700mm vs 482mm. The Borg has a substantial aperture advantage over either the TEC or the Vixen.
The 2" Feathertouch is the way to go for visual; it has 1.5" travel vs 0.8" for the M57 version.

I haven't tried it extensively on visual performance, but I sincerely love the view it gives during the brief sessions.
