Only one very short night out so far as this one really did get shipped with clouds but even after a short view i am confident this is going to be a good one. It is bigger in the flesh than i imagined but fit and finish is excellent and the tube feels stiff and robust which is encouraging so far as holding collimation goes. It arrived well collimated so far as i can tell checking with a Cheshire and with a star test. I'm super looking forward to putting it through its paces on clear nights to come. I'm not a fan of crayford focusers so that may get an upgrade at some point in the future. The focussed itself is solid and smooth so far as crayfords go.
A fantastic planetary scope

Iíve owned this scope for a week or so now and have had a chance on a couple of nights to image Saturn and Jupiter. The scope itself is solidly built and easy to collimate using a Cheshire collimator. Weight wise the scope operates comfortably on my EQ6-r, balancing well with a camera attached. At F12, exposures are longer (and with a x2 Barlow, longer still) however I easily captured detailed images of both planets and their moons on my first outing.
I have added a Pegasus autofocuser and a Telrad viewfinder to help with finding planets as the FOV is narrow at 2400(ish) mm FL
Overall, I am extremely happy with this purchase and look forward to continued use on the moon once planetary season ends.

Early days for this 'scope but so far so good. No unpleasant surprises. All seems to be good quality and as described. I have taken a few lunar crater pictures and they have been better than I expected. Focuser works well with good adjustment. Losmandy rail provides better stability on my SkyWatcher AZ-EQ5 with adapter.
