This is my first telescope, the price was right for a beginner. If you don't lose interest, the mount is big enough for a larger opitical tube. The views are great, looking forward to warmer weather so I can send more time watching the night sky.

This is my first telescope. It arrived in 3 well packed boxes. I did take the time to read the instruction manual first and I recommend you do the same. Assembly and set up was easy. There are many ways to align this telescope. I chose quick align so I could start playing with the controller. Don't worry about messing something up just get familiar with it. I then used the utility "factory settings" to reset everything back to the way it was out of the box. I then chose the alignment procedure and all the options I wanted to use and set them up correctly this time. The telescope tracks beautifully and the view is stunning. You will be very pleased with this telescope. The equatorial mount , which contains all the functionality, comes with an extra dovetail mounting plate. So you can mount another telescope you may have and turn it into a computerized unit if you desire. I am setting my telescope up in a corner of a store room at my home that i have converted into a ...

Being a rank amateur, I felt the instructions were directed more toward those more advanced and were less user friendly for the entry level purchaser. That said, user forums were available to offer explanations and helpful advice to get me going. The telescope and mount are of extremely high quality. My only criticism would be that the rail mount at the bottom of the scope needs to have some sort of safety stop to prevent the telescope from accidentally falling from the mount should the securing screws not be tightened or inadvertently left lose. It is a bit awkward to mount the scope to the mount alone and secure the screws at the same time. This could be the basis of an accident without some sort of safety stop.
