Review by:
I've had this now for almost two months and couldn't be more pleased. Despite the ongoing issues with Meade I decided to take the plunge anyway. I've had a PST for a long time and enjoyed it but I wanted better views. Scope arrived in great packaging and the included case is beautiful. Scope looks great, but the real payoff is the performance. Out of the box it only took a few minutes to setup, find the sun, focus (need to pull out the diagonal drawtube several inches), adjust the front Richview tuner, then tweak the front etalon tilt tuner to get rid of the ghost images. Didn't need to mess with the second etelon tilt tuner at all. Despite the lack of current solar activity the views are still worthwhile. Sharp surface granularity and enough prominences to enjoy. Can't wait for increased solar activity in the coming months and years. The scope weighs right at 10 pounds with included eyepiece, so you will need a solid mount. (Posted on 2/12/2020)
