Using 2" eyepieces, this scope gives absolutely superb views. The only thing I would reccomend changing, is the focuser. The Skywatcher focuser that comes with it is a bit cheap and flimsy, and really could do with something like a Moonlite focuser. Using a 20mm 100afov ep gives a tremendous view of Andromeda, and with a 2x Barlow, the view of M13 is really fantastic, and so are most of the other views, as well. However, the 300p does have a serious downside. It's no lightweight. You need hydraulic arms and legs to move this beast around, and if you plan on taking it out to a dark site, you also need a biggish car as well. It's not small. Overall, I would certainly reccomend this scope, but be prepared for the size and weight.
