I remember sending you a E-Mail about this just a little bit ago. But I forgot to mention that I spoke to a Orion salesman about the quality before I purchased mine and they are basically a one stock deal. They have alot of them and it is a sales deal they use to get them to do business with them. Except the product is not Language Removed. Once I got mine I ran it through the mill and I found very little problems. I like the polar alignment scope and the EQ-3 motor drive unit. I can resolve the donut hole in M57 Ring Nebula and see good pin point stars in M13 very good. It is excellent in the planet department. I see better deail on Mars thatn I do with my 8" Dobs. Jupiter and Saturn come out real well. I do highly suggest you get color and nebula filters. Have fun.
