Quote:Focusers can be a big jump in price if they are different. But not sure if that's the case here. I think having that knowledge that a poor optic scope will not be sent to you is worth something. How much depends on the situation. Some of the Stellarvue owners may be able to weigh in here...but I've heard stories of the owner of stellarvue rejecting optics and sending them back to the manufacturer. That would make me wonder if the cheaper versions of the scope (sold by someone else) would be that rejected one. Something to think about.Customer service could be another consideration. However, I have not dealt with Stellarvue so I can't really comment on all that. But I believe they have a very good reputation from folks on this site
