150 PL? Probably the best bargain on the market today. Excellent performance on all targets EXCEPT super wide fields ... but then a small refractor, or a decent pair of binoculars, is best for that. Can't be beaten for planets or "faint fuzzies" without buying a scope which is the same aperture but costs 5 times as much (planets) or is significantly bigger. Like all budget scopes, I wish it came with a more robust mount, but at least upgrading the mount is a feasible & cost effective exercise.
