Another version of Meade's Classic 4" SCT. This is the telephoto version and its pretty impressive. As a 1000mm f/10 Telephoto its excellent. Good sharpness and contrast coupled with todays DSLR's that can easily shoot at ISO 6400 and you got the equivalent of 20x magnification. It can really bring in distant subjects.
The helical focuser is great with no image shift that I can detect and buttery smooth action. Solid all metal construction yet light enough to carry anywhere as a grab and go spotter, telescope or solar scope. It originally came with .965 accessories but promptly installed a 1.25" visual back and diagonal!
