A nice scope, but at $7k is a bit rich for what it is I think, especially given the lack of potential accessories at this price.

I agree Mark

However it has a nice apo triple objective, the LUNT152 objective is only an achromat and has twice the price tag

Definitely trying to appeal to a wider audience with this scope, similar principle as the Coronado SMiii in that respect. Ironically they both use the same 62mm diameter internal etalon so you would hope the 152 was less expensive being the cheaper ota by atleast $1k. Maybe Lunt will have a sale on the 152s? :D
