Hi all,

 

Finally my scope the triplet arrived few days ago and pity i went to pick it up with big payment fees for customs duty + VAT, i was cheated or shocked that it came via FedEx and i never chose this shipping, the site i ordered from they chose it for me, i chose UPS Express one, so it is like i paid twice for shipping now, because it was as expensive this fees as the shipping with UPS anyway, i don't know if a complain will fix it or it is too late. frown.gifmad.gif

 

Now i am left with the second scope to buy next to this one, definitely i will never buy this same scope and not from the same site, so after long search i saw that Askar FRA400 is the best match for this scope using the reducer, 0.7x with Askar and 0.65x with TS 90 triplet, one with APS-C and the other is with 4/3", i won't care about sampling or scaling at all here, both scopes and cameras are nice great quality enough, and processing will do the job later.

 

Because i always like to ask and research, i want to see if this Askar FRA400 is a good choice and idea or not, what do you think? If you have another opinion, please let me know, but don't make it like my idea is completely wrong/impossible and yours is the only correct possible one.

 

The next purchase will be the camera, OSC APS-C, so the second scope will be a second plan, just want to make sure if i should go with it or think another options, this 90 will be with APS-C OSC camera [RGB], the second scope will be with one of the three 4/3" mono cameras [Narrowbanding and Lum/LP].
