I have always said that if I had to go from having a couple of scopes to one in weighing aperture versus portability, contrast and almost crystalline view, then that one scope would be a decent aperture refractor. This 120 might just be the ticket.

Hi Darren,

 

Thanks for the great review. I am planning in buying this telescope. Are you planning to write a review

on the astroimaging performance?

Thanks in advance, Fernando

Hi Fernando,

 

I haven't been in the imaging game now for over 9 years. There was a time I was active and spent enormous amounts of time at that but no more. I'm really not qualified to write a review to speak to the imaging capabilities of the scope, and yet from past experience can appreciate some of the included extras and the design of the scope being aimed at that user.

 

Sincerely,

 

Darren
