      4.0 William Optics Megrez II 80FD

      Pros:

      1:10 focuser, Megrez-package instead of Zenithstar. Very fine optics!

      Cons:

      You need an extender-tube to reach focus (which is delivered in the package)

      Comments:

      The Megrez-version of WO's 80mm FD refractor is a fine piece of equipment. We tested this scope with its triplet-apo 80mm WO brother. We looked through two cooled-down scopes at Saturn with a 6mm Radian eyepiece and a TV 2x Barlow. The images in the FD looked more sharp and crisp than the triplet. Chromatic aberration was almost not visible, a little bit more in the FD. Fine details in large belt of the planet were visible.
