“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
Quote:What are the specs on the scope (doublet or triplet? glass types used? focal ratio? etc.). Also are there any spot diagrams for the optic? I didn't see a "Forfax" listed on the Istar website. Is it maybe a discontinued or a newly introduced model? 140mm is a nice portable, but still large (for a refractor) aperture.

Quote:Colors seen on planet are exact as seen in the CPC 1100, details are plainly evident and comparable to the CPC being that the CPC does not take magnification as well as the refactor.
