.95+ I thought was premium figure?
There are kind of three levels with Apos. Entry level with FPL51 equivalent glass. Premium glass. And premium glass, premium figure. The EDL is the middle.
I am debating whether or not to buy a NV device. $3k is more appealing than $4k. But if I get the $3k one and think it is really cool, am I going to regret not spending an extra grand to get the high end model? Similar issue here. I got a middle level, Chinese FPL53 doublet. I was happy with it when I was using other Chinese scopes. When I started upgrading my scopes, it eventually became apparent that the Chinese Apo wasn’t quite keeping up anymore so I replaced it with a Japanese Apo. One might argue I could have saved money just starting out with that in the first place.
So you just have to evaluate your interest level and spending priorities. If you see yourself eventually continually upgrading your gear, then you probably want to spend more now to maybe save an upgrade step. But maybe you have other hobbies to spend money on, and the ED will do just fine because your world doesn’t revolve around stargazing.
