Vixen FL 70S
[Note: Vote moved from description by webmaster]

What an incredible telescope. It has the best optics I've ever looked through. Being small and light, it is easy to carry around. I use it on a Gitzo tripod and fluid head, a fine combination.
Focuser mechanics are OK, no play or backlash, but not in the same leage as my AP130. Optics are definitely better. Perfect startest. Sun with Baader filter is jawdropping. So are Saturn, Jupiter, Moon, double stats and the Messier objects. So much clarity, sharpness and contrast. I find it difficult to put my enjoyment of the images in this telescope into words. But let me say this: the FL 70 brings me closer to the universe then any other scope I've used.

Clear skies.
