2. For those that own more than one telescope, what size aperture do you use most often?






When I owned a TV76 it was most commonly used scope.

Before and after that a 6" F/5 reflector were my most commonly used scopes.

I just got an old C-8 and due to continual cloudiness have not yet gotten to make it my most commonly used scope, though I expect it will be.

Maybe a mod here or someone else could get Astronomics to give a summary statistic of the aperture size of the three most common scope types and % sales by diameter

Refractor: 60mm, 80mm, 100mm, >100mm
Dobsonian: 4"-4.5"", 6", 8", 10", 12"-12.5", 16"
SCT (/MCT): 4"-5", 6", 8", 10", 12", 14"

The most popular aperture is the one conjured by those afflicted with aperture fever!
