I moved from the TV-76 to the TV-85 and feel it the perfect "Grab & Go" scope for astronomy! I've put it on a DiscMount(DM)-4 and it's quite a combination! Light weight, smaller size- but with a big enough aperture of quality lenses for serious study of the night sky. My wife loves it for bird watching also! The TV-76 was also wonderful but we wanted a little more size- we found it with this exceptional scope. As a side note, I had called TeleVue with questions about the TV-85 and talked to Al Nagler himself. It was Al who told me to call Adorama (quite a recommendation for Adorama!).
