Novosibirsk/Sovietski TAL-2
Wonderful telescope! One of the few times that I received more than what I was expecting.

I bought this scope to fullfill a wish I had since my childhood time: now almost being 40 I persuaded my wife and got it as a birthday/Christmass present!

It's sturdy but old fasioned: no computer interface but just a well crafted, solid scope. No plastics in the mechanical parts and everything is adjustable. Over all: great value for your money. This is not a toy but a real 'tool'. My wish list: Digital setting circles and/or computer controlled positioning, tracking and focussing... preferably on an Apple Mac through USB.

I only have the Tal 150mm F8 primary mirror. The rest is Helical Crayford Focuser (Model HC-2), 1" protostar secondary mirror all mounted on a LXD55 mount.
The primary is excellent, there is no coma or distortion at all. All Stars are pin points and planets show great detail.
