Very nice telescope. I really like the fact that it came with a case to protect it. I'm really impressed with it.

No ce telescope

Excellent build quality. Best I have seen so far. Back focus for my Nikon D3200 uding 2" t-ring without the not included reducer corrector requires a long extender. Using my 1.25" adapter and t-ring I was able to get a good range of focus. Overall gor the price point an very good deal. Wish the corrector was not $325....
