I got one! Just got in August. Still playing with it. This is the lower cost one that has a 2 element lens. The expensive one has 4 element lens. Mine has the built in alignment scope. I have a 8" Dobs and nothing compares planet resolution with the 120mm refrac. I love it for astrophotography, it does well. I also got the drive unit for it. Need that. I only use my 26mm and 17mm with barlow to make it 4 eyepieces. It's not a bad buy. The tripod is of good quality and the scope is too or at least reasonably well. You'll notice a big difference in detail on the moon and planets. Deep sky stuff is good too.
