Quote:Hi Kerry, Dunno specifically. A cemented triplet - if done right - has several advantages in a scope like this one that is geared toward this particular target audience. It's less fuss for the company to mount and align (providing it's properly cemented of course). And of course, it won't go out of (internal) alignment. There's also an improvement in cooldown (especially if there are large air spacings) although that's probably pretty negligible with a scope this size.Of course, on the flip side, you have to make sure that the elements are properly matched before cementing, and that you use a proper cement.
