The tube was black and the secondary had an orange cover. We understand that many of our products are technical in nature and require support. It’s an unfortunate fact of life that fancy Goto electronics fail. However, that compactness requires steeply curved optical surfaces — the primary mirror is F2 – which can be hard to make well and close tolerances are required if performance is to be good. Do the coatings look good? Yes – 1 Eyepiece Included.
