This is an amazing telescope!

I had an meade etx 90e, that was my first telescope. I have had it for about 15 years, but it was time to get something new and bigger. So I bought this beast, and I absolutely love it. The amount of light it gathers is amazing. Very durable and does not feel cheap at all. The only thing I would say would bother most ppl "not me" is how big it is. Moving it around could be a hassle to some people. however when it comes to how much i can see and the detail, it's amazing. Ps the opt customer service staff is amazing! They helped me with a few hiccups that I had and were fast and very friendly. Phots off the moon and orion's Nebula through my phone.
