I found the assembly and use of the telescope to be super easy and look forward to exploring more into what this scope can do.
A surprisingly good scope for a non APO
A nice compact scope that offers a surprisingly clear view. After using Dobs for years, this was a completely different experience. It was like viewing in 4K. The chromatic abberation was clearly present on the bright moon and objects against a bright background, but it was not a big deal for me. The scope is light and easy to set up, and has a reasonably solid tripod. There is vibration on moving the scope, but this settles quickly. The eyepieces are not great, I kept the 25, but the 10 will probably end up going to the shed for air rifle practice. A couple of X-Cel's or similar as replacements will make a world of difference. All in all, a really good scope for what you pay for. Jacobs Digital's service was also amazing, I received the scope the next day. Thanks Jacob's staff!
Metal optical tube, reasonable optics, I would suggest buying a Barlow lens and a solar filter to make it more versatile . Made astronomy more accessible to me with the demands of my busy schedule due to the minimal setup time. The only downside is the finder scope.
