    This is my first telescope and i am very happy with purchase.
    I'm no expert just a beginner, and i find this telescope very easy to use with fantastic images. Comes with great instructions/manuals, with an overall quality from the optics to the tripod.
    As for OzScopes they are very helpful, friendly & honest to deal with.
    I will definitely make future purchases from here.
