What a View!!!
Ive had my TOA-130F for a little bit over a month now and I have is nothing but praise for this scope. It is an optical and mechanical marvel that is a joy to use. Saturn looks oh so sweet, M42, marvelous. I can get all of M45 using a 41 Panoptic!!! The sky, even in super light polluted Miami, Fl, is blackened out and the stars are little pinpoints of light using an Ethos 13mm. I only do visual astronomy and this instrument lends itself magnificantly to this application. I went ahead with the 4 focuser model because eventually I plan to try my hand at serious astrophotography and because I like the whole beefy-ness of it. Make sure that you have a very sturdy mount and high quality eyepieces as this will allow you to get the most out of this scope.
