What was I thinking
This is my second Mewlon 250. I thought I had to sell my first one, to help pay bills. Never again, I dont know what I was thinking, I never should have sold it. I regretted it from day one. This is in my estimation the Ferrari of scopes. Not because of its speed (at F11 there are other scopes that are faster) but the way it just works. Optically it outperforms much larger scopes, as I am able to push the scope to its limits when the other scopes have already turned mushy. On one very steady night in Chiefland, FL someone in our group laid down a challenge saying his scope was the best. We picked the double double in Lyre and started throwing on the power; by the time we got to 1,500X I was the only one standing. I still had 2 stars with a hole to drive a truck through. When you add the exquisite finder scope, light weight, the electric focusing of the secondary, fixed primary, removable back for cooling, magnetic weight system and the unbelievable fit and finish, is there any other scope that can compete, I dont think so. I also got smart and bought the EM200 to mount it on. This move turned out to be a stoke of genius on my part. My CCD images are showing the results, with nice round tight stars and detail missing in my other earlier images. It will be a cold day in hell the day I part with my second Mewlon 250 and EM200 mount.
