In the world of commercial telescopes...perfection is sometimes hard to achieve. I'm sure there are those who probably have said the same about a C-8 too....
I would agree with that if the Dynamax was merely a mediocre telescope, but it's not. It's awful. Once I got better telescopes, the DX8 went into the basement to live forever, never emerging except for the occasional fruitless attempt to fix the bloody thing.
Yes, but now you are hearing it from someone who likes standard commercial optics just fine. Most Dynamaxes make the average C8 look like it was hand figured by master opticians.
