It's served me well and I've seen some great sights using it, My first view of M13 with everything in crystal clear focus just blew me away. But as it's getting used less and less each year (I'm getting old and cloud chasing has taken it's toll.)

simple easy to follow format shows just what you can expect to see and where to find it.)

Two large bags to carry it all in. (yes the scope fits neatly on a purpose built rack inside one of these bags
