Quote:Someone my club bought an SMII 90DS and while it is a fine scope, there are a few things that bug me about it.- I hate the helical focuser. It's stiff and difficult to get a precise focus with.- The extension tubes are sloppy.-Terrible "sweet-spotting". Unless proms are almost directly in the center of the FOV, they're either very dim or gone completely, and this is through the BF15.I just received an LS80 single stack, but haven't had a chance to use it, yet. I'm curious to see the comparison.
