    I am an astronomer at the intermediary level and so I got this. All what I view was pretty much clear and setting up to view the target object is also as easy as a walk through. May be I should say it look bulky but it does not matter when other things matter.I can easily focus by just rotating the tube and it’s a cool access as the trouble of handling various knobs are no present. I can say no other model but for this will give you such an easy and quick mounting. Very much pleased with this!
