Editor's Notes

February 08, 2019:

While these certainly aren't the finest scopes on the market, there are some impressive specs if you know what to look for. A few boast pretty nice f-ratios, and most seem designed to at least offer a decent amount of magnification. The two computerized models on the list have databases that actually outperform those of other brands that are twice as expensive, but those others usually have smoother, heavier mounts for object tracking.

Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
