Wow! I'm seriously impressed with this 8 LX200. I purchased it a year and a half or so ago, and it has served me well ever since. It has pinpoint accuracy--this mount is incredibly capable, and the optics on this telescope are truly impeccable! It has provided me with countless hours of enjoyment. Make sure to get the microfocuser, as it makes observing very convenient. If you ever have questions with your order, ask for Jason. He was always very helpful.
