Marvin Johnson Reviews

Best accessory Ive ever purchased

If you own an FSQ, an FS-102, 128, or 152 this accessory is a must for visual astronomy. It removes whatever false color there may be in my FS-152 even on the brightest objects. Several amatuers viewing through the Extender-Q and the FS-152 freely admitted the absence of any visibly discernable false color. There is no reduction in image quality - period! Fantastic quality and workmanship. Its even configurable for using with the binoviewer to double your viewing pleasure. Talk to Anacortes for appropriate adapter information.

Window to the universe

Breath-taking window to the universe. I find myself just starring with amazement at the beauty and delicacy of a wide field view of the milky way. This EP with an OIII filter brings the veil out in haunting eerie 3D. M31 fully engulfs this EP in my 6 f/8. I am mesmerized with the double cluster and M42. Although expensive, its a lifetime EP; worth saving for. It may not be perfect but its real close! Much closer to a 10 than a 9.
