As an Istar Phoenix 204 f5.9 owner, I couldn't be more pleased to hear ZERO CA was on the way with news of a game changing telescope on the horizon from Istar!
Owning the best Andromeda galaxy telescope currently available in the Phoenix f5.9 was important to me as it is my favorite object. I traded a ton of equipment towards one and couldn't be happier to get rid of what I had. NEOWISE through a Pentax XW at my Bortle 1/2 site proved I'm done with reflected light and just how good observing can be. Holy Cow! Wow
Now news of a possible Apo triplet telescope to complement this small but beasty Phoenix f5.9 from Istar will add another dimension to my observing and imaging.
You see I love astronomy as you do and all of our equipment is sacred. I use an array of equipment price points. To be able to offer a telescope on the level of an old Nikon or the best figured TEC as far as performance but offer it to the masses at an unbelievable price had me wanting more and to become apart of the Istar family.
