I bought this product as an upgrade from a small table top mount scope for beginners I got a gift from the wife who ended up getting the astronomy bug herself. While the price is considered too expensive for a first time scope this scope is great for intermediate users who want to upgrade from cheaper smaller scopes. The size you see will fool you ,but the Maksutov-Cassegrain design allows for a 103mm resolution in such a small package for ease of transportation. The scope can be mounted to the tri-pod it comes with which is well built, and solid or you can use it on a table top setup. The scope comes with a single 25mm pelosi eye piece 1.25 diameter standard for most small/medium celestron scopes. It uses 8 AA batteries to power the goto mount, and you can get optional power supplies for it 12 adapter or standard 120v power adapters. The setup for the skyalign is slightly confusing to set up for the first time, but it has multiple alignment modes to locate many different celestial objects. I was able to hook my camera up to it easily, and took many great pictures with it definately a great scope.
