This is my first scope. Yes it is a very good bargain for the money, but to be honest, it is somewhat of a cheap scope.

The views are good and if you are on a budget, there I can highly recommend this scope.

The azimuth movements are much to stiff so I have done work on the mount to improve its movements.

Also the focuser is a cheap piece of junk, the inner tube has a lot of play in it and will wiggle. I have replaced this with a better focuser, which looks exactly the same, but is quality.

My seconday mirror also has a chip on the backside, which I saw someone posted on the 8 inch skywatcher dob board.

Beyond these issues, this a very good beginner scope.

This is not a beginner scope, it is much too big, a beginner scope is 60mm to 150mm.
I must say for the cost, i dont see how you can get a better deal. Ive seen better views through this, then the more expensive scopes of the same size! If your looking for a more serious instrument for star gazing, this is the one!
