Entry: Astronomy:Equipment Reviews:Telescope Reviews:Stellarvue AT1010 (OTA)

A remarkable scope, especially at this price.

I bought mine used on Astromart, and have enjoyed it so much - and so often - that selling my 8" SCT has crossed my mind!

Mounted on Tele-Vue's Telepod, I can use the scope sitting or standing and the hours just breeze by. Scan for clusters, or zero in on the planets, this scope does both, and at a bargain price.

I seem to split my time between a 22 Panoptic and 9 Nagler in this scope.

Highly recommended. I also think this would make an excellent first scope.

Even though I have a Meade LX90, this scope gets plently of use. I carry it in the back seat of the car and whip it out for quick sessions. (Sometimes while driving cross county at night.) I recommend a 17mm and 25mm plossol, a barlow and an inexpensive Baader solar filter as accessories.

Try one out just for the fun!
