With a doubler, I was able to see gas lines on Jupiter. This, I believe is the best you can go without going way over 1K.

this is the first telescope i have ever purchased, so i have nothing to compare it to. i cannot figure out how to do the alignment for the auto star. i never could get the smart finder set right, because when it got close to being right, it cracked!!! however with the autostar, you can easily move it up/down/left/right, even if you do not know what you are looking at, the view is still awesome!! i also bought accessories so i could hook my camera up to the scope, and i have gotten some amazing pictures.. the moon is just breathtaking when looking through this scope. it is heavy, but the bigger you go, the heavier it gets.. i like it alot, and if i ever learn to use it i am sure i will love it!!

This is our first "real" scope, having spent some time with other cheapo units. We decided that we like the GoTo capability, but aligning the scope can be difficult due to a weak mount for the alignment viewfinder (causing it to lose accuracy with a minor bump). The scope is actually TOO good for aligning, because we think we're aligning on the brightest object, but it's actually a dimmer object in the area instead! We've also used this for terrestrial viewing, and have been ecstatic with the results, especially with the righting eyepiece.
