ED80 Delight
03 March 2014  | 

I purchased this at Astrofest 2014 as a compete set up and used it properly last night. I was delighted to be able to gain my first image of M42 and it wasn't half bad. The instructions for the mount are worthless but there is a great deal of support on the net. Once you know what you're doing with it, it's premium product all the way. I purchased the right angle finder as you need to be a gymnast to use it on some orientations. Over all, I am overjoyed and looking forward to many nights quality imaging.
