    Comments about iOptron Versa 108 ED Apochromatic Refractor OTA:

    I bought the scope from the manufacturer after I tried here first. It arrived in a decent aluminum case, covered in plastic, and single boxed. Visually, I cannot see any blue halos around Sirius or the Moon. Actually this scope has shown me the best lunar view I have ever seen. With a 5x Barlow, planets are actually observable although a little soft but still sharp. The scope is collimated very well. The focuser is very smooth, but there is a rough spot around the middle of travel. The scope weighs about ten pounds. The dew shield is nice and actually extends long enough to prevent dew, about 6 inches. The paint and finish is made to last. Very high quality control it seems. The rotating focuser with degree marks works very well. While imaging, I can rotate without worry of any image shift. The clam rings are high quality as well. They have four holes per ring with the outside being 1/4, 20 & the inside holes are metric. It does not come with a dovetail or a field flattener. I obtained those from another well known supplier for less than $200 & they work fantastically.

    Comments about iOptron Versa 108 ED Apochromatic Refractor OTA:

    Just received it today, need to find a mount to hold it. It is heavy but appears to be very well built. The duel focuser is smooth. The mount rings and tube are well built, even the case it comes with appears to be heavy duty. I will comment again after I have some time to use it
