Stellarvue AT1010 (OTA)
I have had a number of Stellarvue AT1010 scopes and after their ads I was expecting a really good scope, almost an semi-apo and a really smooth focuser.

I wasn't really impressed with this telescope, and have sold every one I got so far. Yes, they look great and the focuser is a 2" model. But the optics are not all that good in my opinion and the scopes I received all had little perceptible flaws.

I have to agree..I tried two of these telescopes and sent both back. Pinpoint images? no, stars were not pinpoint images and had flares. Yes, they are "built like a tank", impressively built.. maybe too heavy for their size. 
 Do you really want a telescope that can't be collimated in case you get one that needs it?
