My wife gave me this telescope for Christmas 2007. I was very excited to put it together as soon as I opened it. It is made very well, it does have some plastic pieces, so one has to be cautious to not break or over torque these. The mount is a bit shakey, especially on windy days, so you can loose your object of view, but otherwise it's not too bad. I have been able to view the Moon, Saturn and it's rings, the M45 cluster and one other star cluster that I do not know the name of. I am an amateur, so I am still learning. This product is very easy and quick to set up. The only con I have for this is the USB camera, I cannot get mine to work, each time I hook it up to my pc running Windows XP Pro, it reboots my pc when I try to run the camera program. Other than that, it's a good product, you will get lots of enjoyment out of it, but be patient, stargazing can be frustrating. Enjoy it.
