Completely agree with Jozef! I´ve used this telescope for a couple of years, and haven`t find any better for the planets!.... ( Even some "Nebulas") I must say!

The telescope is delivered in good-looking aluminium suitcase, 28 mm eyepiece, 2" diagonal prism, 2"/1,25" reducer, 2"/T adapter, 9x50 finderscope, tube rings and mounting plate. This telescope has almost perfect optics which offers diffraction limited picture. Also, it's mechanical treatment is very good. Crayford focuser is solid with no backlash and 1:10 gearing is great thing. Snap system of diagonal prism enables it's rotation along langtwise axis so you can justify the eyepiece or CCD position as you need. And some minuses ? The finderscope has no focusing and it is little disadvantage if you wear glasses. Although the dew cap's length is right (2 * D) I had to use my own longer one. Also sombody can be surprised that because of long optical length of diagonal prism it's not possible to focus without it using some eyepieces.
I bought this telescope as guiding scope for my older 5" Newton but now I often prefer it for it's excellent picture.
