Incredible Image qualityPros: Cons: Comments:
I have had this scope for nearly 5 years now and the optical quality still impresses me overtime I look through it.Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
The resolution and lack of aberrations create and impressively bright and razor sharp image throughout the entire field of view.
The build quality and finish is second to none. Excellent value for money this telescope. 5 STARS

What a piece of engineeringPros:
Strong Construction,Quality Lenses,Easy to Use,AccurateCons:
I just upgraded from a ED doublet to this triplet and the difference in quality imagery is amazing.Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
The doublet had FPL 53 glass and produced excellent results with very minimal aberrations visible. This FLT 110 is in a different league altogether. I believe the glass sued is FPL 51 in a triplet formation, however the results are nothing short of spectacular. There is absolutely no visible coma or aberrations visible to the naked eye or in photographic use. The clarity and sharpness is outstanding.
The ergonomics are probably second to none, the 3.5" focuser is rock solid and can handle anything I have put at it, from 35mm full frame cameras to large format.
Great engineering here. I would highly recommend this scope to any serious astrophotographer. 5 STARS
