The Starwave 110 ED delivers slightly higher resolution and more light grasp than the 102mm ED for a small increase in weight and size. Deep sky and planetary images show slightly increased brightness and image scale, letting you discern slightly more subtle details at the eyepiece. Colour correction is better in the red Hydrogen Alpha regions of the spectrum than in the blue regions, and this is a great galaxy-imaging scope. We classify this telescope as a "Semi-APO" and it significantly outperforms an achromat refractor of equivalent focal length at an incredible price. With a Contrast Booster filter to remove any residual chromatic aberration at very high powers, it will compare to an APO costing several times the price on the moon and planets.
The additional aperture of the 110mm ED design makes this a suitable option for those who want slightly more performance over a 4" refractor, but who still want a relatively portable telescope which won't over-tax their mount.
The Starwave 110ED is still quite portable for field use. The focuser features the same robust design as the ED102 version, and an optional dedicated 0.8x reducer/flattener as well as the slightly larger aperture, give this telescope improved field performance over a larger area, making astro imaging with larger CCD chips and DSLR camera even easier. When using the flattener, the focal ratio changes from F7 to F5.6 (choose the flattener option in the drop-down menu below).

    My first good quality telescope and I've been viewing Jupiter the last few days (when weather allows me), very quick delivery and very well built. Decided to go for the 110mm instead of the 102mm for a bit more light gathering and magnification. It works OK on my EQ5 mount but I need a larger mount for imaging like the HEQ5 or larger. I have also bought the plano flattener and adapter for Nikon D700. Very solid quality and better optics compared to my 150mm Newton dob and I can track the view with the motor drives. Fred

    Got the Starwave 110 and it's a good all-round choice for planets and general observing. I preferred to get the larger AA TMS 250 black Losmandy type dovetail plate to replace the Vixen one it ships with so I can attach it to my CGEM. The focuser was slightly stiff in rotation so I called A-A and they told me to put a drop of 3-in-1 oil into each of the holes where the grub screws go then replace and tighten them up slightly and evenly, now rotation is very nice and smoother than when it arrived. Good quality for the money in my view. Jim
