Comments about Sky Watcher Sky-Watcher PRO 80ED APO Refractor OTA:

I've had the Sky-Watcher 80ED refractor for about a year now and cant stress enough as to how great the optics are. I originally bought this OTA for astrophotography and still plan on doing so, but at this moment I'm currently using it for observation only. The reason being the Schott glass gives you such a clean and crisp image, even without the help of a filter. For example each star in a star clusters looks pin sharp, and nebulous matter can be seen with great detail. As for the construction of the OTA, it is very well built and sturdy. The tube has some weight to it but not enough to put stress on your mount, that is depending on the rest of your gear. I would say the only draw back to this OTA would be the finder scope. I say that because the reticle or "crosshair" that helps you center stars gets lost in dark skies. I would replace it with a illuminated reticle, but all in all this OTA is great for astrophotography and observation.
