Super scope! It did so well on a shootout with several bigger scopes that I took it apart and added fans. Easy Peazy. The back comes off easily.

At a recent star party it again outdid bigger scopes and presented beautiful Airey discs. It is heavier than my 8" SCT but worth it. Maks are magical. (Posted on 7/27/2015)

First, Woodland Hills Cameras and Telescopes was great throughout the whole purchase. Shipping, packaging service was first rate.
The Scope:
Easy to mount and comfortable
Optics were superb
Focuser stability was excellent
Eyepiece mount: Well made
Collimation (as received) was perfect

I put the scope through its paces on a barely decent night. The sky was about 4 out of 10. I compared it to my 10" reflector. It was better on EVERY object I turned it on.
Jupiter as well-defined...bands easy to see and clear (even with the so-so sky)
Stars were as sharp as I have ever seen.
Deep space object were a joy to behold.
I'm more pleased with this scope than any one I've owned.
