Theoretically, it should be able to resolve a pumpkin about 500 miles away.

That Optica is awesome.

How about a Cometron CO114 (Vixen) and 4.5" Lafayette (Towa)?

They would have been horribly overpriced and had dim, narrow fields of view!


The elegant beauty below: easy to set up, enough aperture to satisfy, plus grace, style, and that certain panache; this one's got 'em.
