BBC SKY AT NIGHT MAGAZINE
EQUINOX-80 ED PRO
"We took five, two-minute exposures of the Pleiades & Andromeda galaxy which were then stacked and image-enhanced using K3CCD tools. They gave a tremendous amount of detail - in fact they were the best images of these objects I have ever taken..."The view was pin-sharp across 85 percent with the 20mm lens and there was no apparent colour fringing at all around the stars"...Overall the refractor performed well on all tasks. It would make a top quality addition to any astronomers scope collection!
