I bought a new scope. Because i like my recently 70 mm F/6 scope with FPL 51 that much i decide to go up to a 102 mm.
This one is a TS 102 mm F/7 with FPL53 and a lathanum lens, so a doublet.
It arrived this week and i had the change to test it on the moon.
Some things :
At lower powers in 82° eyepieces such as the 26T5 and ES 24 it shows some color on the moon.
But with a 4 mm eye pieces giving a whooping 178x it shows no color at all,not at the left side nor the right.
This is better then in my 70 mm FPL 51 scope. I am starting to think that the low powers is more a latteral color effect.
Could this be true?
Sofar this scope really impresses me. Fit and finish is exquisite, with a retractable dewcap which can be set with 3 small hex screws, a superb 2.5 inch focuser that can cope with a heavy eyepiece and diagonal without any issue, ,nice white painting, much travel in the focuser.Really nice scope clamps ,which work smooth .All CNC engineered , real nice. Even a metal lens cap with soft stuff inside the cap...
Sofar i am really thrilled with it, could boost it to around 250x with still an amazing moon image.Considering the 102 mm aperture this really surprised me....
There are only first impression , i really have to test it further on planets and double stars in the future but i am pretty convinced it will not dissapoint me
