    Fantastic Grab and go
    Overall Score
    I purchased this great scope on the back ground of owning a 10" goto skywatcher dobsonian. I use this great little scope a lot and am able to see....for size great views of the great nebulae of Orion as well as picture perfect views of the moon. The alignment is easy and amazingly accurate as long as you set the tripod up level. I actually use this scope more than my dob now as it's so light and easy. It also works great with sky safari pro which opens it up even more with the Wi-Fi attachment. I've travelled from north eastern Victoria to the northern territory with great results. In all great views as long as the object is in the centre of the lenses and I only use a 32mm eye piece for my best observations. Love it. Review by Mat (Posted on 30/03/2019)

    A nice goto telescope at this price, very portable, but the alignment is quite challenging for me, perhaps my inexperience with the telescope to be blame. Review by Pearson (Posted on 6/10/2017)
