This scope has been around for nearly two years. Reviews aren't great,
but typical for the price and wide field. Google is your friend.

That's what it says, rich-field!
But is it flat field or what?

Just a plain Fraunhofer achromat and a fast one. Will have a bit of colour, not great for planets.

The only real innovation is hiding the star diagonal in the main tube.

Fast refractors and wide fields tend to be demanding on eyepieces too.
There is no free lunch.

I think, this system is a step simpler than Newts, no CO, it has no primary mirror, front lens is focusing light to a secondary 45 deg mirror in the back, which diverts the light to outside.
My guess!!!!!

That is obvious. You don't need to guess.
It is equivalent to a basic f4 refractor and a star diagonal.

There are other options in a similar vein with more conventional design:

http://www.opticalvision.co.uk/astro...l-102_az3.html

or

https://www.telescopehouse.com/teles...-assembly.html

or

https://www.telescopehouse.com/teles...refractor.html

Though some are going to be a bit longer. Anything faster than f5 is
going to be pushing it in terms of eyepieces that will work well.

Photographically the f ratio makes a difference to field of view and
exposure times.

Visually only the magnification and AFOV of the eyepiece matters.

100mm f4 = 400mm fl & 20mm eyepiece = 20x & 28mm eyepiece ~ 14x
100mm f5 = 500mm fl & 25mm eyepiece = 20x & 35mm eyepiece ~ 14x

Ultimately the view is limited by the field stop on 2" eyepieces.

1. No, low-power, high-aberration rich-field achromats are the worst for planets.
2. Low-power scopes are poor choices for imaging planets.
3. Colour error bloats star images in deepsky photos.
