I bought this about a month ago and couldn't be happier. I have only got to use it twice but the views of the moon and Jupiter and it's four Galilean moons where amazing, I only noticed very slight chromatic aberration with it too. I bought it with the eq-5 mount which is very sturdy and is ore than capable of handling the telescope.

eq5 mount is heavy, and cumbersome to drag in and out the house, scope quite good on clusters but does flare at edge of field, good on planets with some color showing on jupiter, false? the only thing lets it down is the focuser rack, a lot of play in it with the 2 inch diagonal on it , but some thin ptfe mouse tape on the inside of the focuser rack smoothed it out and took up the play, and a re greased sorted it. for the money you can get a good 8 inch dob!! but then its a matter of portability.
