Hi everone
Today I took delivery of a Stellarview Nitehawk Next Generation 80mm ED refractor. These scopes are now a discontinued item and are reduced in price.
I had a quick look tonight at the moon and Beta Centauri, and could detect no false colour up to 100x magnification-surprising for an FPL51 doublet. Diffraction patterns inside and ouside of focus were excellent and lunar images were razor sharp.
The scope comes with a soft padded carry case with plenty of extra storage, a Vixen mounting bar attached to its tube ring, and it has a removable section of the tube to allow focus with a binoviewer
The focuser is a Stellarview 2.5" crayford unit with 2" and 1.25" adapters-the 2" adapter has 3 compression screws acting on the brass compression ring, evidently with astrophotography in mind.
All in all, an excellent small refractor for the money.
Laurie
