Great product. Easy to use for a beginner.
Tuesday, 29 May 2012  | 

This is my first telescope and, with all accessories, represents a significant capital outlay. However, the investment is well worth it. This is a complex piece of kit and requires patience to understand. Reading the manual for a first timer is a must. It takes practice to set it up correctly and is learned by practice and repetition. The effort made pays dividends when the GoTo is used for the first time and Saturn and it's rings are in the centre of the eyepiece. M31, the moon also proved to be good targets and allowed practice for changing eyepieces in the field to get greater magnification. Optics are good and clear with no apparent spherical or chromatic aberration.

Two very minor criticisms would be that running it on AA batteries is not practical. It does need a Power Tank. The finderscope took some getting used to but once mastered does the job.

I am more than happy with my purchase and am looking forward to doing some serious observing in the future.
