Author: mekaone {!} , I have been in to astronomy for many years and love it., from Troy, NY on Aug 20, 2011
Pros:  Awesome price, 2' focuser, metal tube, came with all the tools you would need, packaging was excellent, shipping was very fast (2 days to my house) and I paid about a 3ed less that other brand dobsonian telescopes of the same size and quality. It is a rweal deal !
Cons:  None that I can see yet.
Would recommend:  yes

I ordered it on Wednesday morning and received it Friday night. I had it put together in about 45 minutes. It didn't need to be collimated when I check it. Not bad for a long trip on a UPS truck. All parts were packed very nicely with foam block, foam sheets, cut to fit cardboard and bubble wrap. I did not need a tool to put it together because they came in the parts bag. It has a metal tube covered in what I think is plastic and all the parts are metal. Almost no plastic with the exception of the dust caps on the eyepieces and scope. It looks real nice in person and feels like a quality build. This scope feels like it is going to last me for years. The only thing I am going to add is a right angle finder scope to it and a few more eyepieces. From what I can see is that this is a very complete kit/scope for anybody. It is easy to tote around and small enough to to fit in my small apartment without taking up much room when I am not using it. I have used it only a two times and yet I can say I love it especially for the price I got it for. I hope this helps someone with making there choice for this scope. You can't go wrong.
