Thanks Jim, Bryan, Don, Sdbodin and Refractordude. The SW 180 is a great lunar scope, it can handle high power easily in good seeing.

Wonderful shot - and yet you sold the 174!

Did you replace it?

Thanks Mandrew and Altocumulus. These 180 Maks are great lunar scopes. I’ve sold off or gave away all my imaging equipment, just never enjoyed it, I much prefer visual.
