    Default Megrez 72FD like Grab-and-go telescope?



    Hello,
    In this case wanted to ask about the Megrez 72FD refractor and that such performance for visual observation, wide fields, especially.
    As a grab-and-go telescope?
    thanks

    I can not comment directly on the 72 but I do have a Megrez 110 and it is a great grab and go scope

    I have the old Megrez 80FD and I think it also is a good grab and go size. The 72FD is pretty close to that and should provide nearly the same sort of wide field views.

    Enjoy!
