I re-discovered how much fun a small telescope can be after buying my TV60 earlier this year. I had just had cervical surgery and was limited to lifting 10 lb. The whole rig weights in at about 7 lb including the tripod and it’s given me great views of the constellations and planets. It will soon serve mostly as a travel scope. I was so impressed by the views it delivers and by the quality of Televue scopes that I recently acquired this beautiful TV76 for the days when the seeing doesn’t justify setting up the larger scopes at my place (the TV60 is at a different location). It will also allow me to use a binoviewer as is my preference. Can’t wait for first light. But, the new telescope curse is in full swing over here.
I very much doubt this will be my last small refractor.
