Okay, so no one actually *needs* a Tak Mewlon 210, especially someone who already owns more scopes than they know what to do with. I'd actually end up selling a scope or two from my current arsenal if I bought this one, although I haven't decided which one yet. My goal would be to have a relatively short, lightweight, portable scope for high-magnification lunar, planetary, and double star viewing, with more aperture than any of my 3-5" refractors. I would plan to mount it on my DM6 & Berlebach Planet.
I've already chatted with one of you (dr.who) about this scope, but I'd like to hear from others who have experience with the Mewlon 210. Any insights, whether positive or negative, will be greatly appreciated. And while I'd love to try out one of these scopes, I'm also stalling for time, hoping that someone else will buy the one I've got my eye on. That way I won't have to explain to my wife why I'm buying yet another scope!
