      Comments:

      This APO refractor is my best toy for astrophotography, can get fair details on deep sky objects, it's heavy and well assembled, focuser works great, if you are using a D-SLR you'll probably need an extension, the rotolock feature its excellent, I don't have to worry for knobs anymore, views are amazing, I'm very happy with it, thanks to the whole AgenaAstro team for their excellent service provided.
