The Pulsar Recon X550 (#78026) is certainly WORTH the money. If your goal is to see in the dark with very good to excellent resolution, you want this unit. Its light gathering ability is quite good, but understand this is still not a 3K dollar Gen 3 ...
I was not impressed. First of all, "Factroy Demo" = rebuilt. The red screen function doesn't work. Although you are not supposed to focus the eye piece, when attempted nothing happens. It is barely 2nd generation capable.
Pros: It turns on.
