I was very pleased by the star test, pinpoint star images and contrast of this inexpensive instrument (mount plus telescope is only $300 more than purchasing the mount alone). False color was present on bright objects as expected, but did not seriously interfere with viewing pleasure; good planetary detail was preserved. Go-to accuracy of the mount was good for visual purposes, the sought-after objects appearing in the field of medium-power eyepieces. This was without using a polar-alignment scope. The mount is just adequate for use with the long and unwieldy 6 inch refractor. This is a BIG telescope. The mount is solid as a rock when used with my Teleview 85 mm.
