ED103S

The optics of this scope are simply superb -- truly apo even if a doublet. Stars are pinpoint, and I have yet to see a trace of chromatic aberration. Mechanically, the build is very solid, and the rack-and-pinon focuser smooth. The ED103S was also packaged with a high-quality, very stable 7x50 finderscope and a flip-mirror diagonal. I give it 4 stars rather than 5 only because the focuser is single-speed (an odd choice by ***** on a high-end refractor in this day and age). Since I use the scope only for visual observation, the flip-mirror diagonal is awkward, and I immediately replaced it with a standard star diagonal. The ED103S is being replaced by the SD103S, somewhat better tailored for photography, but as I hear with the same optics.
