Pedro,
Though I have never owned a TeleVue apochromat a friend of mine has a TV85 and I love that scope. He also has SharpStar 76 and 94 triplets. I like the TV85 better than both of them at his dismay. Of his scopes his Takahashi FS102 is the only one that can beat it. I bet the NP127 is seriously awesome!! A dream scope!! The NP 127 is a quadruplet.

Enjoy it Pedro!!

With all your scopes you’re going to need a bigger home, Pedro. :lol:

Beautiful results Pedro. The TV 127 should be a great scope.

Hi Pedro, maybe this is a dumb question, but what is the advantage of using the TV 127 with the SM60 vs the TV 101? Or is it mainly to do with Herschel wedge?

Thanks guys

The NP127 has a better definition when compared to the NP101. I plan to use this OTA from now on for FD imaging (three ligths) including doudle stacking. The NP101 was my workhorse for a long time

I always find your three light composite most informative, Pedro. This should improve their resolution which is already very good.

Your upgrade will benefit us all!!

Thanks Pedro.
