Excellent astrophotography newt if you're willing to tinker a bit.
I've logged a lot of hours with this telescope now, had it for a few months. It's permanently mounted on a pier in my observatory on an EQ6R-PRO. The mirrors/optics are fantastic. The focuser tube that it comes with is suprisingly good too - it handles the weight of my imaging train with filter wheel and a motorized focuser without issue. You will have to adjust the tension though depending on what you have loaded on it. Some issues lets see... the stock rings/dovetail are too close together. You'll have all kinds of flex issues, focus/collimation changing slightly after meridian flips, etc. I bought two 13" bars to spread the rings nice and far apart. One of the rings is now just below the focuser tube and I get zero issues with focus tube flex. So... plan on another X bucks for longer bars at least. The metallic "puck" suspended by the spider vanes holding the secondary was installed upside down on mine. If you find that for whatever reason you cannot center the secondary exactly to the focuser tube like it just can't get "high" enough, take a look at that. Otherwise, tear it down, flock the inside of the tube with some good dark flocking tape, install a primary fan, QC every nut and bolt make sure good and tight - you got yourself a sweet little photo newt for a good price!
