Starmaster 16" f/4.3 Dobsonian
Can't find even one thing to complain about on this scope. A Zambuto mirror that is as close to perfect as it gets; a fantastic removable mirror cell; efficient truss design; incredible woodwork; incredible feathertouch focuser; "Sky Tracker" GOTO; heaviest assembly of only 43 lbs.; and unbeatable views at the eyepiece. I'm sure I'll keep this scope until I go blind or cease to draw breath.

An awesome scope. Perfect combination of one person portable/setup, excellent deep sky, good wide field (1.2 with a 35Pan and Paracorr), as good as it gets planetary. The drive and goto stays dead on all night. The zambuto optics are magical. As good as it gets.

The quality of the optics is superb and the Sky Tracker drive is probably the best on the market today. The scope is so well balanced that it takes no effort at all to move it and maintain the desired position.
