I really liked using this kit. It is rapidly deployable and the SynScan software is well designed. Zipping around the sky and visiting all manner of objects presented it with no challenges. It lends itself well as the choice of a first instrument, too. Astronomy Now Magazine, January 2018 - Read full review
