Managed to see great details of moon craters, Jupiter with its moons - Great crisp picture. Will scout for a good location further away from CBD to have a better view of DSOs and nebulae
I also look forward to buying more lenses and filters to add to the fantastic experience.

That said, using the standard eyepieces, have had some great views of the Orion, Crab and Tarantula Nebulae, can see the stripes on Jupiter, and have just this last week got clear views of Saturn, with the ring belt clearly showing as it circles in front of Saturn. (Although not separate rings as other reviewers have said - maybe they bought other eyepieces?)
Just panning around through the Milky Way is pretty mind boggling...
It is a bugger to move around and awkward. I fitted two caster wheels to replace two of the feet, but not much better.
Now I am tossing up what to buy in the way of filters and eyepieces to go a bit further. The website is somewhat unclear about the differences and purposes of the different options.
The staff were great to deal with and the delivery incredibly quick. (Posted on Feb 27, 2011)
This telescope gave me my first view of star clusters and nebula.
The software that comes with it is great to. Fantastic for beginners like me.
Now to buy some more eyepieces. (Posted on May 27, 2010)
