I thought these were junk am I wrong ?


Recommended Posts

The OTA's are similar to the Meade AR5 / Bresser 127L - possibly made in the same factory. This one does not have a collimatable objective cell like the Meade / Bresser do which, for me, would be a disadvantage.

To put the price in perspective, this is the same OTA:

U.K. Astronomy Buy & Sell

The main importer for these was "Skies the Limit" I seem to recall.

that one on ebay has been on there for weeks and weeks, i think the £500 starting price is highly optimistic, i think i would be looking at an evostar 150mm in preference

I did think it looked similar to a Meade. £500 for an achromatic is beyond optimistic more like insane.

Agreed - my Meade AR6 was just £125 for the OTA :D
