This is day 1 - still light and absolutely stunning.

I’m a big believer in readIng the reviews before I buy and I’m always sceptical about 5 star reviews and if they are genuine but I took a gamble and it’s seriously paid off!

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 27, 2020
This is my first scope and I adore it! Easy to put together, though the EQ mount takes some getting used to, but in the long run it will be more useful if you can persevere. It’s not to heavy or bulky for storing, plus I’ve added a photo of what I managed to capture on my first attempt using an iPhone which was held to the eyepiece using an adapter, great piece of kit overall
