Monstrously heavy and big Review by Ptkacik@uncc.edu
A sturdy mount for an 11" SCT. However, this thing is monstrous. The mount is forty pounds, the tripod is forty pounds, heck even the spreader bar is like a ten pound cast iron frying pan and the sole counterweight is twenty two pounds. Who has the back strength to use this beast?

At its lowest height, the finderscope is six and a half feet up. At its highest extension, I don't know how you would reach an eyepiece.

Visually I'm still struggling with the Celestron choice of alignment stars. I think their alignment star names are made up. I've had mine for several months and half of the few times I've taken it out, I've given up at the alignment stage.

How are the optics? Just fine, and the mount is stable.

Nevertheless, I'm now considering donating it to a school, but think that might be cruel joke on them.

It doesn't have to be this way. Are you listening, Celestron? (Posted on 8/10/2015)
