  • Excerpt: Hassle free purchase from B&H. Received on time and shipped with care. The scope is solid and only having brought it out for a quick peek, was able to see jupiter and four of its moons cyrstal clear, Orions nebulae was easily seen and amazing ( using the 25 mm eyepiece that came with scope).

OK but needs factory assembly improvements

  • Summary: The scope is decent, some purple fringing but the image is sharp (moon viewing) Focus rack could use improvement, start with a better lube from the factory. The rack has a sticky lube that doesn't do much good. The CG-4 mount would be OK if it came lubed and adjusted properly.
  • Pros: Price
  • Cons: Poor quality mount
