SEARS /TASCO VS UNITRON

I have one of the Antares 'Vixen Spec' 105mm f/14.4 scopes and the lens in it is excellent. No false color to speak of at all. Maybe I just got lucky, or maybe they're really that good. I'd like to think it was the latter.

On Saturn the planet was razor sharp floating in an inky black back ground.

Andy, is that a Vixen SP mount you have that long tube on?
If so, I am really thinking about a longer tube now.
Regards and clear skies,

I'm also looking at the possibility of acquiring a 5" f/15 Jaegers right now. Will have to see how that works out. I would really like a bigger achromat -- just waiting for the right one to come along.

That's a fine looking scope but I'd only mount the Telrad on it when no one was looking ;-)

And I really do need to make some room for it here.
