Views through this scope are very nice. Unfortunatly this scope does not hold collimation well. Something is wrong in the design. This is unlike it bigger brothers, yet just like the 180. when you can get it to hold collimation though the views are very nice
This scope rates TOPS in my book. With a jet black background the stars and plantes look as if you are looking through a 6 high end APO. and with the added apeture deepsky object are even better. Very easy to use and the electric focuser makes it a dream.
