- Well worth it!!
Two problems: (1) Could not load the software from the CD. Found it on the Celestron website and installed it on my laptop from there. Very easy to do once I found it. (2) The focus mechanism is horrendous. I hope it loosens up with use. It will pi... you off and might put you off at first but persevere because it's worth it. You're never going to like it but the images are worth it once you get the hang of it. It's as if someone in the design/engineering team was trying to make this product fail despite its clear strong points. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
- Great tool, simple to use, aids investigation and can be fun also
We have used it already in a number of areas that we hadn't anticipated with good success.
It's also become an aid to training and communicating knowledge with our clients. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
