  3. Thanks for your comments guys. Paddy it seems good on my two monitors. Take a look on my histogram .
  4. A tough deepsky object especially if you are using a small refractor like SW ed 80. Anyway it seems that this small semiapo telescope can do more things than we think it can. Hope you like it.

  5. Hello there folks. I'm thinking to purchase one 120 esprit but i'm afraid the misaligned optics that may occured during shipping. I'm wondering if there is any changes and maybe fixes on lens cells of the sky-watcher esprit series. Do they all esprits 80-150 have collimation cells or only new batches ? Thanks in advance. Angelos.
