Bought this telescope b/c I knew it would simple to use, and b/c I thought it was going to be my "take it everywhere" scope. I was wrong about the 2nd part. If you have a compact car (Corolla/Civic/etc.) it will take up your entire trunk. That's the only bad part about it. Because of its size, it's really powerful and everyone who was there for our first moon viewing session was stunned by what they saw. The other thing I should add is that you will need to do your research if you want to see less obvious things in the sky, and learn how to properly align the finderscope if you're going to use more powerful eyepieces. It's just you and the telescope, no fancy bells and whistles telling you where to point it (or rotating the scope for you). Finally, I am convinced that there is no way you will get a scope this nice at a price this low. A couple of people who have used mine now are already talking about getting one for themselves. If you want a more compact version check out the 5" Bushnell DOB that is even cheaper!
