    My first goto mount was a Meade LXD-650, high capacity, rock solid mount, a bit of a work of art for its time.
    I spent more hours swearing at it and its electronics than I ever did observing with it.

    Ya gotta keep this Apo/Achro thing in some balance of perspective. Apos are awesome, but long focus Achros aren't that far behind them - Siriusandthepup (CN)
    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind.
