Well, to start with , the salesman on the phone knew more about what I wanted and needed more then me. The collimator he suggested was a must and made setting it up a breeze. I didnt even look at the manual on putting it together, very very easy. and moving it to outside is also a piece of cake the way it breaks down. The shroud is a must if you live in a city. But even that is easy to put on and off. I love the scope, it is everything I wanted, Well, I still would like one in a dome on top of a mountain, but for the size and price very very hard to beat. Already have people lining up to want to borrow it. Made fun of it till the seen it and now they all want one. Couldnt be more pleased. Now have to get some 2" lens for it. Need more then the 1 it came with. Most of this size come with 1.25. not even close when compairing the 2. I have 3 other scopes with the smaller lens. 2" if so far better. All in all you will love this scope. Great buy, Great dealer, Great packing and shipping and fast shipping.
