This scope is my first and I'm more than pleased with it, easy to set up and use. The goto allignment worked everytime with the 2 star option and everything I needed to get started was in the box (except 8 aa batteries) which as stated by other reviews it will chomp its way through.
As mentioned elsewhere, buy yourself some more eyepieces once you get more familiar with it and an AC power adapter such as this one which I bought (plugs directly in with no aditional adapters needed)B005JNZ24C
My only critisism is the instruction manual, but that doesn't affect the scope optics. 10 minutes searching youtube and you'll find some how to videos which are much more usefull.
