You're given £4,000 tomorrow under 1 condition that you have to spend it on a scope and only a scope, i.e. No spending on obs, mount, eye pieces etc
So what would you choose to buy for yourself and why ?
And remember, this is not what you recommend for me, it's what you would buy for yourself
I'd hope to convince Mike Lockwood to take them in exchange for his 14.5 inch F2.55 RFT:
If he refused me, then I'd go to Roel and try to convince him to take them in exchange for his 10" travelscope:
If Roel refused me, I'd cry profusely, and settle for a 6" APO.
Mike's RFT is unique, and it's compact, and it's a truly Rich Field telescope. I can only imagine the views.
Roel's can travel anywhere, I could take it to any dark site. any beach vacation. My future travels to Perú and Chile, Anywhere.
¿You know what? I've changed my mind, I'd ask Roel first.
