Review by:
I had high expectations for this telescope. While I like having the big stuff, it’s not really portable or practical to have to keep setting up and breaking down. We’ve had great fun with it but it’s hard to setup when we are out camping and I’ve had times where the battery or some error code shows up and just ruins my night. I wish I had got the 8” version which seems to be more portable and a lot easier to setup. A permanent setup would be great. (Posted on 12/31/2018)
