Discovery Telescopes 15Pros:
Excellent Construction. Magnificant Optics. Extremely well priced for what you receive in quality. Split-tube construction.Cons:
There are always trade offs with large aperture telescopes. These are not portable telescopes.Comments:
If ever there was a best kept secret in the amateur, observing astronomy world, it is the 15" PDHQ telescope from Discovery Telescopes. The views provided through these instruments are nothing less than outstanding and in their large sonotube (single or split-tube) configuration they are the ultimate in eye-candy at public events.
The construction of this telescope - as well as all of Discovery's telescopes - is extremely well thought out and concise with Premium Deluxe High Quality (PDHQ) materials. Just try standing on an OTA from any other manufacturer and you'll end up with one high-dollar Kazoo!! Not so with a Discovery Telescope. They are truly built to last a life-time and are excellent at holding their re-sale value.
I have looked through and compared many manufacturer's large aperture telescopes and dollar for dollar, view for view, Discovery Telescopes cannot be beaten.Sort by
