Questions from a BK1309 EQ2 newbie

Hello Forum Folk!
Just signed up as I'm a total newbie to astronomy. It took a 76 years birthday present of a BK1309 EQ2 to get me started and already I'm loving it! I spent my working life in engineering so its not too daunting but help with two questions would be appreciated.

Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Mini Wifi Polar Scope Question

Hi there.

First time post so be gentle please.

Hi,

Easy to set up and carry, light weight, and can use basically straight away when set up.
