After buying a competitor's small goto scope, I was not happy with ease of setup, stability, or accuracy of mount.
Returned to OpticsPlanet, and they got me my NexStar 5SE in one day with free shipping!! The NexStar 5Se is all i would ever want in a small ultra portable scope, and the customer service and return process at OpticsPlanet is unbelieveable. I will always look to OpticsPlanet first for any astronomy needs I have, as once you find a great scope along with great service, why go any place else?
Thanks Guys, I have spent more time with the 5SE this summer than any summer with my C-8 ever.
Pros: Cost, setup, size, accuracy, portability
Cons: noe to date This is a great small scope!
