For the money this telescope is hard to beat. Once you have aligned the telescope "Goto" a star or planet that you are familiar with. Once there hold down the enter key, then press the enter key again to sink up the telescope. This will help the computer know where in the sky it is and will make the Autostar more accurate. As far as I can tell the owners manual did not mention this option but it will help the navigation. Also, like most, the barow eyepiece doesn't work well. The 9mm eyepiece can also be difficult to get into focus. But for $149.00 this is a nice telescope for the backyarder.
Pros: Good visibility, easy to use. And you can see things that are very hard to see with a conventional telescope
Cons: Goto system is not perfect, but generally you can find the desired object with a little panning.
