The telescope's OTA is lightweight and the dew cap is coming removed in hand completely whenever I remove the lens cap. Instead of pressure fitting this dew cap, Celestron must have fixed it firmly to the OTA. The counterweights have a pin stuck at the middle and it's certainly annoys me everytime when I load them to the shaft. But, Celestron says that, it's the way they produce the telescope. There is no rigidity on the mount and the Planetarium software CD included works only with graphic drivers and softwares on your PC. Unless having these things, better don't buy the scope. Also, the telescope doesn't has much quality and I guess it's selling only because of Celestron's reputation. The product packaging was also not appropriate for the counterweights inside the large box. I would say that my overall experience is pathetic. Be sure, that this scope will not look the same as you see it in the Celestron setup videos and other photos and it will surely disappoint you in one or the other way in regard with the design. I think Celestron's products will have quality only when we go beyond $500 in our purchase. I am certainly regretting to have bought this one. If you want a heavy scope then go for the Omni XLT 120 or 127 which are perfectly rigid in construction.
