So of course I immediately took it out to see what I could see. Wasn't bothered to properly orient the EQ mount and just picked a patch of otherwise empty sky. Through moderate light pollution, and air thick enough to chew, I found a nice star cluster that wasn't even remotely visible to the naked eye. No idea what I saw, no star charts, just pointed at the heavens. I can't wait to see what's visible to me when I actually have some idea what I'm doing. It's wort noting that the focuser is threaded for a t ring. I purchased a t ring and tube combo, but you could do with just the ring and perhaps a tube that accepts eyepieces for eyepiece projection. I couldn't focus prime on the eclipse with my D5000 and the 2x Barlow t adapter tube was too much zoom. It was still awe inspiring to be sitting there looking at sun spots.
For an entry-level scope, it has me beyond impressed. Optical clarity on the included eyepieces was superb and the fine adjusting/tracking mechanisms were silky smooth. Including a Barlow would have been nice, but the $16 Gosky I got on here does the job without breaking the bank. If I had it to do over, I'd buy this scope again in a heartbeat.
I still highly recommend this, especially for occasional/moderate use. I also recommend you get two additional pieces to really make this thing a winner:
1. A barlow lens, 2x (increases magnification significantly)
2. A moon filter (decreases light so you can see finer details on the moon, especially when full)
The Package arrived in a big box but small enough to put it in the back seat of my car.
When I opened it it was very well packed. Set up time about 20 mins. For collimating the scope I needed to read instructions which were provided by ORION inside the box as a manual. IT WAS HARD,, took me about 90 minutes to complete this task A 2mm Allen wrench, not supplied ( got to buy one ) is needed to collimate the secondary mirror. ORION does give you a a small screwdriver and some wrenches to complete other installation tasks.
Finally got it ready. I got it polar aligned and adjust the view finder.
Sirius: Very bright and sharp enough. M42 : WOW clear and bright with supplied 25mm eyepiece. Bought also a 40mm celestron ELUX eyepiece which show me a more brighter image. SATURN : Impressive no chromical aberration VERY SHARP AT 90X. In conclusion, So far, this scope delivers better images than my previous refractors. Sharpness is a PLUS here. CONS: It vibrates a lot when focusing or when tracking, I will put more attention on tripod and mount installation next time but I don't think I will get a lot better in this vibration issue. Another issue its that it is not very portable, it is not a "grab and go" scope, a Dobsonian might be better in this field. If you are looking for an ASTRONOMICAL TELESCOPE that delivers sharp IMAGES and bright ones THIS IS FOR YOU. So far I AM VERY HAPPY WITH MY NEW SCOPE. Good luck in collimation. Clear nights to All.
Cannot resolve planets in detail.
stars are points of light as expected
Moon shows GREAT detail, may be bright
on small view radii, constant adjustments need to be made- a bit annoying, but at the same time very cool- since this is visual confirmation on Earth's rotation.
Jupiter is blurry, but Great Red Spot may be seen sometimes.
Moons of Jupiter are points of light.
Mars is red circle
Saturns rings are visibly surrounding the planet
