the 3.7" is a much better quality IMHO - thats enough to make it worthy - optics are fine but the next important bit is focuser!

 

Its so good I did not feel like I wanted to change it out for a moonlite which is what I wanted to do 

 

its says it does support FF yes

Could you share a video of bright star test, plz? Curios to see any halos, given this is FPL53.

So I see the 3.7 inch focuser is about 2,000 eu, at TS.  Did you say it fits the ZWO EAF?  

Also, do you think it is too much for a Eq6-R mount.

Wish I lived in New Zealand, you guys really beat the virus.  Great job!!

 

glad you are enjoying your scope, looks awesome smile.gif

thanks
