I tried one while researching the book about these telescopes. I was really impressed and found that it showed a lot more detail than the PST. What surprised me a bit was that the limiting magnification was 140x, as compared to 100x with the PST, so it wasn't proportional by aperture.

While researching the book, I was trying to find someone who has looked through the MaxScope 70 and MaxScope 60 side-by-side. Although I'm unable to go into print on this, I'm still curious to hear if anyone has tried a direct comparison.
