Recently I made a post about which achro would be the best from 2 choices. Due to my circumstances I nailed it down to the Skywatcher Evostar 120/1000 Achro.
Since the curfew here (can only legally leave the flat between 5am till 8pm due to covid situation) wouldn't allow me to use it at the moment, and there are stock issues as well, I haven't yet bought it. However, what I did not realise is I haven't even considered the Bresser Lineup on achromats.
I came across the Refractor in the title, and I would like to know the exact dimensions of the Bresser 127L to see if I could fit it in the truck of the car. Also, is the Dew shield removeable? ( that would save some inches for sure in terms of length). Since it is possible to fit a 2" diagonal, what would be the lowest power 2" eyepiece I could use without any serious vignetting and aberration?
Right now I am seriously considering this over the evostar 120, since its longer focal length would allow to have less CA (it would be nice to know just how bad/good the CA on this particular model from people how have actually used it ), so technically better view on planets, its a tiny bit bigger in terms of aperture ( around 10-15% more light gathering than the 120 ), but since low power widefield is important, I'd like to know how it performs in this area as well.
The mount I will be using is the Skywatcher EQ5.
Many thanks for all answers in advance!
