    Seems to be the one I longed to possess. It is simple but gives the output of the better ones. I own this for the past 2 months and literally I have nothing to criticize about. It is not because it weighs less but still I make sure I carry it for star light parties with my friends. So like that once I was able to see the moon and the craters so clearly with the finderscope and it was like as if I am doing some magic for my friends.
