Useless, waste of money

Pros:Autostar is easy to use.
The tripod is light.

Cons:Meade essentially stuck a computer to a poorly designed telescope.

This scope cannot focus properly. It has a design flaw. When you turn the focus knob, the whole scope shakes. You cannot focus on a violently shaking object!
I think you will regret buying this scope unless you enjoy seeing blurred objects or you enjoy spending 15 minutes focussing on one star.
