Gave myself one after retiring after 46 years in Psychology. I've had two previous scopes and wanted a good one with clear optics and a steady mount. Did I ever luck out!! The mount is a "hoss" and I wouldn't want to run into it with a Hummer (for the sake of the Hummer). It is HEAVY, but I need the exercise. The optics are crisp and the views are magnificent. The GoTo feature is a very useful tool and easy to align.
Having this in my observatory has meant that I spend much more time looking AT instead of looking FOR. Optics are spot on and I have cranked it to the 60X/in on one occasion. It IS heavy and and you would want a JMI wheeled case to travel with it. It points well, even with a one object align. Two is better and three...Only regret is I didn't get one sooner to replace my 10" newtonian.
Very easy to set up and use, esp. for a scope of this size. Cords wrapping and binding around tripod is a problem; could be eliminated if jacks were placed differently.Great optics and "bang for the buck"[...]
