TS Optics 86SDQ vs SW Esprit 100ED

Recommended Posts



I've been thinking about purchasing either the TS Optics 86SDQ (Same as the Stellarvue SVQ86), or the SW Esprit 100ED.


I like the TS Optics for it's quality, and it's widefield, but coming from a SW Evostar 80ED at 510mm FL, I also like imaging at that FL, which is impossible with the TS Optics Scope.


Now if the Esprit 100ED can use a 0.8x reducer, I can image at the same FL as the TS Optics, but even faster, and still image around the 510 (550) FL, giving more oppotunities with the Esprit.


But I haven't seen any reducers available for the Esprit, but maybe someone on here might know an alternative reducer for it?


Best regards,
