Wow Vic. After all these years of following Stellarvue's story I now have a real appreciation for what level effort you put into your optical manufacturing. I still have my 102EDT from the early days. Your level of attention to detail is truly awe inspiring. Thanks

Vic is one kick ass president! Impressive passion for making the best.. Was looking at competitors product.. Not any more. : )

Individual lens spacers taylored for each objective?

We optimize by figuring accurate optics. Messing with spacers is not going to magically make a high Strehl objective out of one that has serious spherical issues. In fact it seems like a crazy thing to do.

Cool. APM does it on their chinese 107mm triplets, so I wondered if this was a feature of all optimized triplets.

Ben: No this is not necessary as long as you keep within the tolerance of the design. Which we do.

Thank-you both of you. I could listen to material like this for hours. (I also now have increased appreciation for Vic's April 1 "Dial-a-Strehl" announcement.)

I have always wanted and admired Stellarvue telescopes and after watching this video, I want one even more so! The attention to detail is incredible!

Awesome video. My AT1010 nighthawk from StellarVue is my most used scope! perfect optics, great value, grab and go scope. Vic and company make some of the best value scopes on the market.

Great video, Vic and Dennis. It was cool to see where my Stellarvue 102 was made.
