Yes, very 

good review. I have this 90mm, it is an awesome scope. It is great on planets and the moon. Pin-point stars, I can grab it (I leave it set up at the back kitchen door)  and head out...doesn't have the  ability my 120st has for hunting dso's... But less purple haze, almost none or very little. I don't plan on selling that's for sure.  Thanks for the good review.

Very good review!

 

Those little achromats are excellent - I have tested two of these units (Skywatcher incarnation) and both delivered fine performance.

 

In an insane refractor market, driven by ugly materialism, this is a refreshing break from the norm.

 

Neil. ;)
