PST v quark at 150

Well the 150 does offer great resolution
of proms & bit more surface detail than expected given the aperture ,
but you guessed it ... the PST wins again for its effortless
FD views :)

for me it's 2 different scope.

It's like to compare a big dobson and a 4" apo.

The pst will give you a nice full disk, but you can't compare a prom view through a bino.

Nice to se pics of the setup.

I agree that it takes different scopes and/or cameras to do justice on full disk vs high-res close-ups...everyone fine tunes the systems to their neds.
