: What does any one think about the Orion ShortTube 80mm Refractor???

I've seen some mixed reviews on these scopes. Your best bet would be to try out one at a star party and see if you like it. I heard it does perform better on deep sky objects than the planets; being an F5,I would believe this is so. Best regards, Bill
