2" focuser not smooth; considerable chromatic ab on bright objects; SVP mount very solid; price was a bargain--on sale at Orion.

You get what you pay for. Easy to set up and take down, but within one year the focuser has become loose with no way of tightening it. It jiggles in the tube. A lot of slap. Some astigmatism under low power however the blue fringe around bright objects is not severe. Excellent views of Mars in 2003.
