    Comments about Sky Watcher Sky-Watcher PRO 100ED APO Refractor OTA:

    I bought this to bridge a gap between a 72mm scope and an 8"sct. The optics use FPL-53 glass for excellent color correction, the dual speed focuser is very smooth, but may require some adjustment if you plan on using the heaviest of super wide field eyepieces. The internal baffling is excellent, especially for a scope in this price range. Tube weight is also quite low, which is a plus when it comes to choosing a mount. The supplied diagonal is nice, the eyepieces not so much. They are fine for outreach type public viewing, where many people seem uncomfortable using their premium eyepieces. The only real complaint is have is with the focuser draw tube. Instead of using a brass compression ring, as most decent quality modern scopes use, the manufacturer made the unfortunate design choice of using dual set screws, which can, and in all likelihood will, result in scratches to the nosepiece of any diagonal or accessory used in it. If not for this one detail, I would rate it a full 5 stars, but this will be a turn off for some. All in all, it is a fantastic value at the asking price!
