Thank Gents..


I placed the same question on a forum in howstuffworks.com. The reply I received was similar. Basically it's a good quality scope. But he did bring out one problem that caused him to regret purchasing the scope.

Namely that the objects move off the scope to fast and since it's not an Equatorial mounted scope, tracking it becomes a real problem. I think he is being sincere but his tolerance for tracking the object maybe a bit low. From what I'm reading on the net, dobsonians are extremely popular. I don't believe they would be so if this was a major drawback.
