GTom Posted November 3, 2016 Share Posted November 3, 2016 (edited) I am looking for an airline-compatible APO. However, small size is not the only factor, I want it to be a great all-rounder, performing well for both visual and photographic deep-sky work and visual planetary. I'd also use the scope for daylight birdwatching/photography. Currently I have an C5 omni XLT, which I feel limited (lack of contrast). I didn't carry around the c5 too much, but provided I pick up a lighter mount (astrotrac...) this bulk and weight should be OK. Currently I have 3 candidates: 2nd hand TMB-92 Signature Series f/5.5 2nd hand TS Photoline 90mm f/6.6 (a bit heavier but cheaper ) Primaluce Airy Black 90T or the equivalent but cheaper Technosky 90 (both should be Shaprstar scopes). Which one would you suggest? As for mobility, the scope + mount head (sky adventurer??) must fit in a smaller hand luggage, the rest is not important, because I usually hire a car at the destination.
