Excerpt: This is a nice scope. very well built and sturdy. The Tripod cold be better. It's lightweight, and could be a little strong. Although, this set - up is supposed to be for portability, but no case. Set - uo took about 30 minutes. Not hard at all. I really have not use it. It's be cloudy here.
Pros: Accurate, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Excerpt: The telescope shipped on time and arrived on time but came with no instrutions. I was able to figure it out without them anyway, but if you're someone who requires those I hear that it has been a problem with this telescope.

Excerpt: I purchased this telescope as I was getting back into astronomy primarily because it was a low cost option with a motor drive function. The optics work well enough if you plan on buying better eyepieces. However, the motor drive is terribly constructed.
