Great beginner's scope. Tripod/mount is junk.

I'm very happy with the OTA, I wasn't expecting anything from the mount and I wasn't disappointed.

Nice optics cheap tripod

The scope is great and has decent eyepieces to compliment it. The only complaint is the tripod is very cheap and wobbly it can be worked with but requires more patience then usual to let it settle and stop shaking your view. Overly a great beginner setup though.
