Great scope for both viewing and photography. Only shot two items since owning it, Jupiter, and the moon...Will need to upgrade cameras before reviewing the quality of images taken from this scope. Will add more later. But I love the scope, and easy to set up with PoleMaster, and Guiding system works well with PHD2!
Haven't had a chance to use it, been cold in Maine. Will let you know the like later in spring time.
