Well, I would say that my first and foremost visual impression with this telescope is, that the scope needs to be moved under the dark and stable skies it deserves. An I should move with it
On a more serious note, I would not consider myself as a reference when it comes to visual observing. But I like what I see. Vega when in focus is sharp and clean, and using a Baader prism the star test is good.
The AltAz mount is an AYO master. And the EQ mount is an old William Optics GT1HD, which I was fortunate enough to be given years ago. It did a great job so far with the NP101is and it seems, that I am able to guide it ok when "the beast" is loaded onto it.
I thought about the AP reducer, but it cost some serious dough. So I decided to give the Riccardi a go, and it seems to work ok on my smallish chip.
Lovely picture of the lens These 185's are awesome!
