Here is what Robert Peterson, a current user has to say about this telescope:
“When considering the purchase of this telescope, I was a little hesitant. It was delivered in three separate boxes and I had to put it together, but it was easy to do. I began exploring the various features and settings as soon as I had the telescope assembled. This telescope gives you the ability to reset the settings to the factory originals so you cannot mess anything up by exploring your new telescope. This model is designed to transport from one location to another if you like to travel around very easily.”
