Captured 15 images of 15 - 30 minutes total exposure time on the first night out. The image quality was excellent in spite of being unable to achieve perfect collimation. Was unable to adjust the secondary mirror to put the collimator beam exactly in the center of the primary mirror. I will spend more time working on this adjustmen in tbe futuret.
I have owned my scope for nearly a year now and have done many imaging sessions with it. Purchasing a coma corrector is an absolute must! This scope produces excellent images, but I had a few speedbumps to overcome in the beginning. First, with the supplied dovetail and rings I just could not achieve any sort of balance in Dec. I solved this by purchasing a longer dovetail to mount the rings on. Second, the secondary spider is very sensitive. It deforms very easily if you tighten your rings too much. Keep that in mind and check collimation after setting up. Third, the collimation screws in the secondary are virtually useless, I'm unsure if they were too short or what, but I replaced mine with a set up Bob's Knobs for easier and tool free collimation. And finally, the spring loaded collimation screws on the primary have tiny plastic(?) washers on them. If you overtighten, your destroy them. I replaced mine with brass washers and have had no issues. Its not stated in the Included Items list, but this scope also comes with a very nice 50mm Finder scope.
Scope arrived well packaged and was shipped quickly. Too my surprise it was in perfect collimation. Finally got a chance to test it out recently (you know the drill...new scope always causes rain) and was quite happy with the imaging performance. Quick star test revealed no aberrations. My other imaging scopes are longer focal length refractors so this compact scope was a real pleasure to use. Weight of the scope complete with rings is around 13lbs. Loaded up with the guide scope and camera ran it up to 16.5 lbs. I use an Orion EQ-G Atlas mount so the weight was a non issue. Scope came equipped with rings, mounting wedge, finder and focuser extension which certainly made getting going easier. No rummaging around in my telescope junk pile to find the parts I needed. A coma corrector is a must as is true with any fast mirror. Overall a nice scope at a very nice price.
