Excerpt: Don't hesitate at all. For those bucks it is really a steal. Telescope and mount quality highly exceeds what you one could expect for this price. The telescope is a beauty and I can't really see a lot of difference between this telescope and my 127mm APO. CA is literally none existing.
Excerpt: I needed a scope that I could move in and out of my apartment easily, this fits the bill. Have only used it for some lunar viewing so far, but it provided amazingly clear views. Very easy to setup and a decent size to move around without worry.
Pros: Easy to Use, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I purchased this mount and scope to be my grab and go unit and it sure has lived up to my expectations. It is a very stable, lightweight, portable mount that packs and sets up quickly. The optics in the 102mm refractor are excellent for the price you are paying for it.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Summary: I finally had a chance to use this under fair/good skies. It gave an incredible view with an 8.8mm eyepiece which gave about 115x I only looked at Venus and Saturn. Phase of Venus could be seen and Saturn was great looking with rings visible and four pinpoint moons.
