    Bought it for Christmas, Reasonably well made, comes with tracking motor, Needs some expertise to use the Equatorial mount, but for the price it offers a lot. 5 inch reflective mirror, tripod is good enough to keep scope steady, Red light viewfinder is ok for tracking onto objects, takes some practice.

    I may have been over ambitious as a beginner at searching the heavens. Telescope was very heavy. Could not be moved easily. The assembly was difficult. To use it you have to be a little technical to set it up. The price was right though and I think that's what drew me in.
