Most posts here are about the Moon, planets and imaging.
Are refractors with their small apertures but excellent optics really only good for detailed views of solar systen objects, and for imaging?
I suppose as higher magnification monoculars, taking over from binoculars, the grab & go hassle free side ipof smaller sizes is good. But beyond that, refractors' apertures are limiting.
So refractors seem more specialised than average sized Newtonians & SCTs, and less good for general viewing of deep sky.
