Lunarjim Posted January 2, 2007 Share Posted January 2, 2007 So, I actually got around to setting it up.Just a short review in 2 parts to see what it it actually like. The second part later tonight when I've been outside.The box it arrived it was very heavy but undamaged.Assembling it was a 20 minute jobThe parts is arrived with:Main scope - silver in colour and not too bad. Looking down the end of the scope the mirror didn't look too bad. I expected worse!The tripod is a very light aluminium one. However, this means it also feels flimsy but seems to be upto the basic job of handling the weight. It came in 3 parts held together with small screws and some large bolts. Assembled it seems sturdy enough. As long as there's no wind blowing. I could erect it in the New Forest but it would probably sink with all the bogs.The rest of the mount is actually not too bad. I'll submit some pictures later .The welcome addition was a set of plossl lenses that seem very sturdy and good quality.So far it seems slightly better than some cheaper Ebay Tasco scopes. The finder is cheap and nasty but seems to work.Still, the proof is in the eating they say. Off to see what it can get. Nice bright :moon: today.As soon as dinner cooked, nipper to bed, vacuumed hallway and got ready!So, should I carry on with this review?? Answers please!
