Vixen/Orion 102 ED 920mm
Excellent scope. Startest was great, easily took my max mag of 230x. No false color in focus. Near perfect star test. Images were just as good as my former TV102 and maybe just a tad below that of my former Vixen FL102, but for the difference in price, this is a real bargin for $2200. My only wish would be that the focuser was as nice as the TV, but for the several hundred dollars you can save over a similarly equipped TV102, I won't complain!!

ED doublet.
I count 5 baffles in the tube.
Near Perfect startest.
Not as well build as a Tak or AP but still very good.
Outside of focus there is some false color.
In focus no false color at all.
Much better than the Meade 4" ED.
O.T.A is cheap compared to other brands.
Class instrument.
Its a keeper.
