Quote:Hi Michael,If the AT60EDT is $599, and the AT65EDQ is also $599, why would someone buy the AT60EDT at the same price?They have the same focal length, and the AT65EDQ has 5mm more aperture and a built in field flattener.Maybe you will have to reduce the price of the AT60EDT to $499 Greg
Quote: Even if this scope were to be used as a guide scope or AP work, as a triplet I am quite certain that the correction will also be good enough to eliminate the need for a flattener.
