RVO 90mm F/5 refractor


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have one of these or had one in the past? I'm tempted to buy one as a widefield / grab-n-go scope as they are a good price. My Evostar 120 and Revelation 10 have their place but neither are really suited to wide field work (highlighted by my recent view of comet Lovejoy).

Doesn't seem to be a lot of information / reviews on / of these scopes. Maybe that tells me all I need to know ;)

Hi David, some years back i owned a Starsky 90mm f5, i think this may have been a forerunner to this scope and yes it gave very nice widefield views, ca was pretty well controlled for an achro, if you go for it please post a review

They do the single speed focuser version too, if  the budget is an issue.
