Legacy Reviewer's Review of Celestron 80mm Guidescope Package, 125 mm rings and 80 mm Guidescope

I would have rated this instrument higher had it not been damaged as received. The scope arrived well-packed with no apparent damage to the packing during shipment. However, I found the shaft of the focus knob was bent, setting the focusing knob on one side catty-wompus. The rack seems to bind when reversing at the end of outward travel and requires a little assistance by manually lifting the eyepiece/camera slightly to get past the bind. (Is this due to poor quality control in outgoing product at the manufacturer?) Even so, the scope seems useable, and considering the price I paid, I opted not to bother with returning it. I have not yet had a chance to put it to use as a guide scope, as the weather has been uncooperative in my locale. I would recommend it, assuming the damage I observed in the unit I recieved is not the norm.
Pros: Optics seem good for the price
Cons: Slightly damaged as received
