all six of us kids went in on this for our Dad's retirement. He opened it on a Friday Evening, and Saturday night he was up and running. Some see the weight as a negative, but it stays put, even with the kids and grandkids jockeying for position. This was worth saving for. Dad LOVES this. Thanks to Celestron.

I change my previous review from poor to all 5. I added the Star Sense Auto Align well worth the wait and money. I also purchased some great lenses from Tel Vue Panooptic 41MM, Ethos 17mm and 11mm. What a difference and the telescope is amazing. Sorry Celestron for the poor review

Would recommend:  no

The system is heavy; I built a base with wheels to move it in out of the garage. I had the Telescope for a year never did find any planets, just moon shots. Tried too use the programmable base and never did get it aligned properly, if you dont have it aligned perfect, every time you will never get it to find the planets. The programmable tripod is difficult too use and you need to be an experience with the planet positioning too get it too work. I tried to find the planets on the finder scope and telescope lenses difficult too determine which is which. I recommend not moving it once aligned, This is not a beginners scope and the programmable tripod is miss leading you still need to be familiar with the Planets and there alignments which changes all the time. The price of the telescope is over price and the tripod is a joke for making it easy to find anything. You will need additional lenses to see the planets that are expensive if you can alighned the scopes

Even after a year and a half, I still love this scope. I'm glad I went with the 11" over the 8 and 9.25. It really isn't that hard to set up. This is my first scope. The views are amazing. Buy an EdgeHD over any other sct, you won't be sorry.

Pros:  Great optical clarity, easy to use, sturdy build quality
Cons:  Could be a little less $$$
Would recommend:  yes

I recently started using this telescope and I can easily say that it is worth the money. Optical clarity is great, the hardware is easy to use and setup. I am really excited to transport this badboy up to WI where the sky is clearer, so I can do some serious stargazing!!!
