Good but some Adjusting Required

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on March 19, 2012

Would recommend: Yes

As far as collimation and set-up are concerned; it took a total of 10 minutes to put together and I was able to view Jupiter and the Moon my first night with no collimation problems. I am absolutely pleased with my purchase and highly recommend this product to anyone a...
