    It is a nice telescope. The computerized mount works with eight Eneloops, so I do not need to worry about the battery cost. The mount is very easy to handle but is not so rigid (a lot of backlash). But it well matches with this short refractive telescope. Its optics is better than I expected: good object lens and eyepieces (exept for prism). In total, it is a nice value pack. Some complaints are: - Lens cap was broken when I opened the box. But Optron promises to send a cap rather than returning everything to Walmart. - Focuser is cheaply made by palstic and narrow. When you use 45-deg. erect image diagonal, you can not utilize the entire 80mm due to the occlusion caused by narrow tube. Also the quality of erect image diagonal is poor. I use a simple 90-deg diagonal instead - I found that it is much better.

    This is overall a good purchase. We haven't figured out how to change the timezone on the telescope yet, but I am assuming we will. It is a good value for the money. Beware, your husbands may enjoy it more than your children. :-)
