I bought my CPC 1100 from Starizona about 4.5 years ago. It's easy to level (which is important), and aligning is a breeze in the dark, or even before dark using a planet align on Venus.
I've gotten some deep sky shots, but a wedge mount is definitely required to get anything over a few seconds in duration. That's my next purchase, along with a solar filter for the upcoming eclipse!! (Posted on 2/14/12)
