Have owned mine since 2007. Very pleased, so far. Very good optics that hold collimation well, especially considering all the traveling this scope has to do. Very good goto accuracy(usually) when tripod is accurately leveled. The goto is a real time saver compared to star hopping with my old 6" Newtonian.
Love that the software can be updated(and done easily at home online). Might have to consider the new Nexstar+ hand-controller though.
Hope to own a Canon dslr and dabble in astrophotography some day.
Also like the ergonomic design. (Posted on 2/21/12)
