Lots of assessment and comment so far about the ED150. The scope I received was very well boxed and looks immaculate. The focusser is smooth and needs no adjustment. Probably undersized, but it rides OK on a Celestron VX. In fact its much lighter than I thought it would be. It's always a nervous time when you offer a scope up for first light. Stars at 400x looked text book so I moved over to the moon. The seeing deteriorated slightly during the session but to give an idea I've attached a picture taken with a x2 barlow and imaging source camera. I've imaged this area many times and am very pleased with the detail. I look forward to further sessions. Pleased to say all seems well.
Wow, are you sure that photo wasn't taken by Apollo? What an amazing view! A great scope indeed!
