I had been after a new telescope for a few years now but never got round to getting one. I needed something that was light, portable, easy to set up and point, and this telescope hit the nail on the head.
It is all of the above and the views are spectacular. I used some lenses from my now old telescope on this and can clearly see planets such as Jupiter and Saturn through it (you can see them through both eye pieces that come with the telescope).
The red dot finder is brilliant. It's accurate, easy to operate and when the dot is on an object, you know you'll be able to see it through the main eye piece. The only thing that takes some getting used to on this telescope is the focuser. Because of its design, it can take a little getting used to, but you should be familiar with it after the first night of use.
All in all, money very, very well spent. Spectacular views, easy to use, point and view! Amazing!

Q1. Can I use a digital camera attached to this telescope?
A digital camera is not suitable for this telescope. The mount is not designed to hold that amount of weight and also does not track so couldn't be used for long exposure deep sky imaging. Instead, we would recommend using a panetary camera which could be used to take short videos of bright objects such as planets and the moon. You could achieve short bursts of video without requiring tracking.
