Paul, Coventry

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
The Orange cnc aluminium looks great and the tripod is very stable.
Bad points:
The mount doesn't lock up tight, so when you do find an object to look at you cant show others because the mount won't lock tight enough to not move, also the lens it comes with are only good for the moon, I couldnt even get close enough to comet lovejoy to have a good look. This is just as powerful as a pair of binoculars in my opinion and the electronic mount is not good either it doesn't follow the earth slow enough and overtakes everything your looking at. I would save a few more pounds and get a better one personally.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
An exellent first telescope.Images crisp and clear.I bought a 30mm wide-field view lens and the moon was absolutely beautiful even at a lower mag.
Bad points:
The motor is a nuisance and I removed it but I may refit it when I get more confident with the telescope.The red dot finder is terrible and im going to get a better finderscope.
