7822Re: Which is better 105ed or 110 fluorite?
- Mar 9, 2006Well, the 105mm has VG color correction. I have not seen any star
halos on this telescope using a DSLR for imaging. The 105mm has the
ability to show smaller stars, probe deeper, and show more detail
because of the larger aperture; photographically or visually.
