I've upgraded to this telescope and all i can say is WOW !! Excellent clear views, no objects jumping around, smooth tracking, all in all a fabulous telescope, only 1 pitfall and a minor one at that,is I did not receive the DVD that was advertised. Well worth buying.

Great value for money
Wednesday, 28 October 2015  | 

I was looking for a replacement for my 1999 vintage Meade 90mm x 1000 refractor, I had an EQ2 mount so bought the startravel 102 OTA given almost the same as this package. the 4" optics give brilliantly clear views of the moon with just a little blue fringing round the very edges, but one of the cleanest views I've seen. I've yet to use it on other objects. The main benefit is the whole thing can now be lifted with ease and transported which was what I was looking for. All in all this is amazing value, just add up the mount, two eyepieces, red dot finder, 45 degree diagonal, take that off the price and you are paying about £0 for the telescope itself. Highly recommended as it makes a great guide scope for my larger reflector too!!!!
