Very pleased

Highly recommended. This scope is well built and very stable on the tripod. Set up takes no more then 5 minutes and the accuracy of the GOTO drive is very good providing your input data is accurate. Battery life with good rechargeable batteries was much better then I expected. Optically the scope is as good as can be expected with a little false color as is the norm with refractors. Overall I would highly recommend this scope for both beginners and the more advanced.

Pluses
  • Stable tripod
  • Nice looking with good finish
  • Lightweight
  • Great GOTO
  • Easy set up
Downsides
  • Could do with a 2x Barlow
