Does anybody here have any experience with Sky Objectives, also known as RR Telescopes? They are in the Netherlands and they have a whole line of achromatic telescopes that look very good. I have only read a couple of things about them and so far they seem to be a quality operation. Their web site is www.so-nl.nl

Hi Cirrus,
I have. I built up a 104/1200, and also a 131/700. Both performed exceptionally, although I di experience a few teething problems with the 131, but ironed them out without too much drama.
The lenses are superb, and Hans is up there with the nicest people in this small industry.
If you want send me an e mail off group at g.beal@clear.net.nz
Regards,
Gary BEAL,

Hi,

Although I can't judge the optical performance of his lenses, I know that Hans is a great person to deal with. He's very concerned about the needs of his clients and is known for his good service. This is, in my opinion, equally important as the quality of the product.
