Had my eye on this for a while now and I finally took the plunge. Great optics but I just can’t keep up with the batteries any longer. Had to remortgage my house and have decided to put it up for sale on Shpock

Would have ordered but can't locate a version of ASCOM that will run on windows 3.0

I'm new to astrophotography.
"Invest your money in a good beginner mount" they say. So I bought a HEQ5 and was looking for a cheap telescope to start with.
There was no shipping, it just said "pick it from the orbit". I've done just that and finally in my backyard, I found out that there is no Vixen style adapter for this scope. Also FLO wasn't supportive. They told me lies like "too heavy for your mount" or "only works well in zero gravity".
I should have spent more money in a telescope from a major brand.
Don't trust this tinkerer company called "NASA" (never heard of them before).
Although bubble wrap and packing were offered i wthdrew from the purchase after i discovered it was second hand! My trading standard officer said he would “look into it”🤨

Purchased this a while ago now...had trouble at first with the focuser but got used to it after a bit of practice
I've had a lot of problems recently (computer wise) so thinking about getting a newer model...Is FLO getting the James Webb in soon?

From what I have read, this model is pretty good. Alas, no returns policy.
Might wait for the new version before I commit
Should mention the broken computer

No idea how the broken onboard PC can be replaced. USB tethering to my laptop probably impractical. These RC designs are not easy to collimate either. I'd still give it 5 stars if it was working and came with a maintenance contract. Nebulas often seem to come out in funny colours that bear no relation to reality though. I'd need to sort that out. There is no green in space.

Does not even come with a cheap eyepiece. Very disappointing when considering the asking price.
Excellent views of the moon, planets and distant galaxies

This telescope is an excellent bit of engineering. It is a little old, but it does the job. The setup of this scope is far from easy, as is the initial assembly (had to order a new mirror as the first one supplied was blurry). Other than that excellent scope! Expect YEARS of localised torrential rain and thick cloud once you buy this though...
