I have often wondered about some of the reviews that some people post.
(have they made sure that the Telescope was collimated ?)
( did they let the Telescope acclimate properly ? )
You just never know the circumstances really.
A review on a Telescope should be given ONLY after many sessions of observing with it.
My Meade 7" Mak is excellent, although GOOD SEEING ( do to f/15 ( powerful ) ) is very important... and it must be acclimated properly. The built in fan does a nice job !
It seems to me that a lot of people take equipment out and just give their views of what they think AT THE MOMENT !
Astronomy has taught me patience more than any other hobby that I have ever had, and I also know that there are GREAT observing nights, although they don't happen every night.
So I am the kind of guy that looks at REVIEWS with a little caution.
