    I "discovered" Discovery scopes a few years ago after some fairly disappointing experiences with the quality of Hawkes.

    The glass is good, the images are sharp, and they are reliable.

    My favourite is/was their flagship model 5-3056 FFP with HD lenses. These scopes are simply superb... BUT Discovery changed the design of this model in May 2021, and the new ones are horrid.
    It seems they took a close look at everything which was good about this scope, and went on a quest to make it bad.

    If anyone knows where an old one can be found, please let me know.
