I hear what you're saying. Last year I bought a very nice Tak FS-60C fluorite doublet apo off Astromart. Yes, it definitely was a nicer scope than the Tasco that I just bought. But the bottom line was that it was still limited by its meager 60mm of aperture, and IMO I couldn't justify the fact that it cost (used) over 7x the price of this little Tasco. And merely for that reason, the Tak, as fine as it was, got sold off shortly afterwards, while the Tasco will likely be a long-term keeper.
Same here , I had and really liked a Tak FS60C but at $1040aud I could not justify it so sold it for a good price $850 .
Then I missed the ease of use the Tak gave so I looked around and found this scope , its a Long Perng 60mm f7 triplet and at $499aus ( $374usd ) I grabbed it and cant be happier , it sits well on my EQ2 in Alt/Az mode giving great views .
Enjoy your 60mm , it's a sweetie .
