Subject: Quick ETX 125 question Sent: Friday, July 22, 2005 15:50:29 From: Mike Luis (firstname.lastname@example.org) What is the FOV in degrees of the ETX 125 @ prime focus.. I can't seem to find anything on that. thanksMike here: I haven't measured it. But using "Dudak's Field-of-View Calculator" (http://www.dudak.baka.com/fovcalc.html) I get 1.3 degrees, depending on the format.
Subject: ETX-125 New vs. Old... How important?. Sent: Wednesday, July 13, 2005 20:05:41 From: John Case (Case_John@msn.com) I am looking at used ETX-125's and have come across both old and new models i.e. plastic fork vs. aluminum fork+bearings. I have read everything you have to say about the ETX-125. Bottom line: is it foolish to purchase an older model just to save a couple hundred dollars? Are the upgrades that important or are they minor? I appreciate your time and thankyou for your advice. Your website has been a great help! Thanks JohnMike here: Yes and No. Certainly the older model can work fine (it has for many users). Certainly the newer model has improvements. Will that be worth the extra cost? Your money. Only you can say.
