I forgot to mention I did a perfect side by side of this Meade 102 and my ES AR102 (twin 2" EP's and twin 2" diagonals) and although the ES was superior in view with a little brighter and a tad sharper image it wasn't in any way a night and day difference. I did notice though, that although the CA on the ES was somewhat minimal, this Meade had slightly less! Maybe the nicely place tri-baffles has something to do with that. Still, the ES AR102 is a great buy considering it's nice 2" Diagonal, 2 speed Crayford and Ring/Dovetail setup. I love them both.
