For an entry-level Newtonian scope, this is pretty nice. Came securely packaged, and was reasonably easy to set up. The main Guide was much more helpful than the Quick Setup guide...as this was our first telescope, they assumed we knew a lot more of the terminology than we did. We got it sighted-in fine, and the first night of star-gazing was truly fun. I also ordered the little motor drive for the scope, but have yet to figure out where it installs, which bracket to use, etc. We'll figure it out one day, I suppose. The enclosed instructions are about useless to us. Even going on YouTube for installation videos, we found nothing helpful. Still, once we get it all put together, I know we'll love this. It's surprisingly good quality for the money.
