Celestron PowerSeeker 80EQ Great Objective Terrible Mount

This scope has great optics (specifically the achromatic objective) but the mount is absolutely flimsy, poor quality, way undersized for this scope, and the finder, eyepieces, and barlow are all far below par. Celestron would do well to sell this as an OTA only and eliminate the cheap mount, horrible plastic barlow, star diagonal, barlow, and the cheap eyepieces.
