revelations 80mm


Recommended Posts

had a short day light go. this is no in between scope, the build quality is way way better than expected. the 90`mirror diagonal is as good as Ive seen, at any cost. i am glad Ive ordered my 250mm orion (UK) DOB, as this small 80mm  is going to blow my 200mm sky-watcher away.  first was a 40mm 4000 sp mead. roof tops were so clear not just in the middle but up to the very edge of the FOV. the FOV was about 5.5 deg. i live in North Kent, at 26mm 4000 sp meade, Essex pleasure beach was clear and bright!  night has just come and its cloudy :clouds2: more to come...... quick p.s the mirror supplied is not the same as the Antares version of this scope! theirs look cheeper, mine is this is a 2"

Thanks for mentioning that Orion... 

I've been skirting around that 'fact' as I seem to have an 'anti-Antares' reputation following this:

To be fair, the Antares version of the Revelation 80 is cheaper; seems a shame though to spoil the ship...
