I recently got a 80mm f/11 to add to my collection.
Not an ED or APO but it rounds out my FL-FOV with the
others.





How many of those (small and inexpensive) scopes do you have? I see you posted another back in this thread.

The 40mm GSO is one of my favourite eyepieces in a long focal length refractor.

That is a very pretty telescope. I love that sparkley look. I also have a SW scope with a metallic look. Thanks for the photo.

My not so expensive Skywatchers: 90/900 and 70/500. Down right, the 200/1000 reflector.

Had my small refractors out last night. Tested the 80 and 70 as guiders and picture takers for the first time. They are not too bad. Left to right my 80mm Celestron, 70mm Meade, and 90mm Meade.

Well at one time. Three. But I'm thinking about adding a losmandy on my 4" so I can add a fourth. I can also put a finder on each except the 70mm. I'll fix that. Just got the 70mm last week. That's the thing about refractors, you can never have enough. Each has different focal length's and field of view.
