Hi, I got my scope about 2 weeks ago and I,m very impressed. A good point is that I can use the eyepieces I already have with my Tal 1 4" reflector, which are a Plossl 25mm and a Kellner 15mm. However the 20-60x zoom which came with the Regal is fantastic. What I may look for would be something which would optimize astronomy viewing, as this scope is so easy and convenient to set up I think it will get used much more than the Tal!

Hi

Yes, that is a fine scope, especially for the asking price. For astronomy or even day use, some of the Televue Naglers would do a nice job, as would the new Delos Televues. I use my Nagler 22 mm and 17 mm quite a bit for day use and love those big wide fields.
