Your "humble" Pentax is absolutely stunning. And it looks so perfect sitting on that beautiful NEQ6. Thanks for sharing.

Regards,
Linda B.

I'm beginning to think I'm the only one with a ES ED80. I haven't seen one yet. I wanted the 127 but they don't make them anymore.

Aw, heck no...lots of us have them. I love mine for Grab-N-Go, AP, and wide field work alongside my longer focal length scopes. Here it is on an ADM dual saddle with my SW100ED...this combo is a lot of fun!

Clear Skies,
Brian

Star 12ED was my dream scope back in the early 90's. Sad they quit making those. Today, I have an f7.5 ED 120 that is probably very similar. It would be fun to put them side-by-side!

Not a completed refractor(s) yet - two TMB 12" f7.5 APO lens in cell for a private binocular project of my friend, received last month. Sad that Thomas Back designed it but pass away 4 years ago, and never see the real lens.

This air space triplet lens have 2 super ED element, and I am told that the color correction should be better than my TMB 8" f7 APO.
