92mm F6.65 Stowaway

Any Stowaway owners here? Your thoughts after using the scope.

Received the long-awaited AP email offering a Stowaway in the next production run.

Don't know why I am second guessing this offer but just curious on what current users think of their scope.

It is a wonderful scope. I use mine for quick grab and go…I am only visual so can not speak to astrophotography.

Quality and convenience in a single package that is so easy to carry around.

I do a lot of public outreach with it and it is a joy.

I am certain that it is capable of much more than I use it for but I have no regrets and it will be included in this stuff my kids have to divide when I die.

Assuming you have funds available, I believe it is a no-brainer to make the purchase. If you do not like it, you can likely resell it for a profit if you are so inclined.

I hope you enjoy it!

I have a number of AP 'scopes, including the AP92

It's superb....as are all the rest.

Artisans like Rowland are rare birds....rest assured, a well cared for AP scope (apart from being a joy to use) will appreciate in value.

Enjoy!

I love the new telescope smell. It should be a wearable fragrance
