Customer Review

on March 4, 2012
The optics on this scope are very good, as are the eyepieces provided, but the AZ tripod's mount is not sturdy enough. The mount needs slow motion controls for both altitude and azimuth. I would buy the EQ mounted 90mm Astromaster refractor over the AZ mount, but even then, the OTA will probably be undermounted, as this is a long tube of 1000mm length. The finderscope is not good either. In fact, it is useless...I will be buying the CG-4 tripod and mount from Celestron, which will provide a stable platform for this OTA. One good thing about the tripod is that it does have steel legs, but the mount is the problem here...
