Excerpt: I bought an Aurora many months and was pleased and somewhat surprised to find it really had everything you need to get started in the package.Of course a good star atlas or guidebook is something you will need to buy sooner or later.<br /><br /> The scope went together well,but the manual's picture are terrible and little help.This was the first scope I used with a RA motor and it was neat to see Jupiter stay in view without me needing to keep cranking a knob.I was happy...
Excerpt: I purchased this prior to a move next Summer to a location with fairly low light pollution. I purchased this to see how well a basic telescope would work in similar light. Since I will be purchasing a 6 or 8" Schmidt Cassegrain, or a 12" Dobsonian if I decide not to do astrophotography, I want to be sure it's worth the costs. I thought this would give me a taste of what might come, and it may.
Excerpt: This telescope was a gift and I was told that it works great. I will recomend your product to friend and tell them about you site. I will order more in the future. I feel your company was outstanding.
Pros: Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Well made mount, but the tripod is a little to light for this scope. Haven't really tried the motor drive yet, but really is not that necessary either. Simple to keep tracking an object with the hand operated controls. Very pleased with this scope and it will now replace my small refractor.
Pros: Accurate, Easy to Use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is the second motor driven EQ scope that I've owned over the years. My first one I got about 20 years ago at 5 times the price. My original expectations were'nt that high due to the low cost of the scope. I was very much surprised though after assembling it. It is very sturdy and very well made for such a low price point.
