Even though I tend to purchase smaller lenses, I can't help but love the look and function of larger lenses too!

I had a newer one with a longer dew shield.  I thought it was a fantastic scope.  For rich field and the price, you cant go wrong.

 

It can take higher mags than anticipated for deep sky.  CA was very well controlled on everything (including M45) but the moon.

 

I would buy one again if I had extra funds and the purpose of rich field viewing only.

Here's an interesting one for y'all. This was on a classic movie I was watching today, from circa 1980. Can anyone guess what movie it is? The main character is a news reporter who keeps having flashbacks from a traumatic event that she can't quite remember. This camera was in the news room recording her right before she sees flashbacks occurring in the reflection. If I give any more hints, I'll probably give it away, but I will say it's a very common horror sub-genre.

Nice lens but I'm having a mental block when it comes to naming the movie. I almost did a web search but that would be cheating. I'm sure someone will come up with the answer though.

Well, since no one has guessed yet, I figure I'd give it away. It's a werewolf movie..

 

"Werewolf?"

"There! There wolf!" lol.gif  

 

Sorry, I couldn't resist. Anyhow, it's The Howling with the woman from Cujo E.T.

Here is my submission, taking the picture was a good astro distraction now that the clouds have come in. Had a couple great Venus sessions in the past several days though!
