Televue 85 a keeper?

I guess it must be, I've had it for 10 years!

Cheers
Paul

120% with you Paul,
If I had to go back to just one scope, my TV85 would be the one I'd keep.
cheers Phil

I agree, it's only 85mm but with a tv 3 mm to 6 mm zoom i get great visuals of the planets at around 240 by.

Yep, saw my first moon transit shadow on Jupiter with this same scope/eyepiece combination. I reckon it punches above it's weight.
