I upgraded to this from a Coronado P.S.T. and I am extremely happy with it. With the P.S.T., you needed to double-stack it to get any detail at all and there was always a lack of uniformity due to the tuning mechanism but this telescope provides breath-taking, detailed views right out of the box. You don’t even need to double-stack it. It really is that good!

I had. a PST for 10 years and loved it, and then I got a 60mm Lunt and it is vastly better than the 40mm PST. Image is so much bigger, brighter and better ! Absolutely worth upgrading to this size. Single stack is wonderful too. I enjoy this scope every sunny day
