Bought this to scratch an itch to be honest as various people rated them on youtube and elsewhere. As I've always been a lifelong reflector/refractor guy, the SCT seemed a total deviation from the norm. They have some shortcomings like everything else but these can be overcome fairly easily these days.
The SkyMax90 has proven very capable for lunar/planetary so far, even with some imaging. With decent lenses and barlow, the details stand out pretty sharply. The lenses provided are ok ish and comes in a useful travelling holdall which will make for a perfect grab and go setup. My first purchase from First Light and the service is excellent. Looking forward to picking up some more goodies from these guys!

Am very happy with the performance and the portability of the telescope which I have mated with a skywatcher EQ1 TRIPOD.
