    Great telescope! It's bigger than I thought, but works great. Try it with a 2x Barlow lens and you get clear images of Jupiter, Saturn, and their moons. Easy to focus. The StarAlign is great. It allows you several options for aligning your telescope based on your level of familiarity with the sky. Obviously, the darker the sky, the better. I haven't had any issues with it. To power it, I've used both batteries and a 12v plug. The only thing I wish it came with was a case.
