We would like to share a review on Star Adventurer for your reference and use:
SkyNews, 2014 Nov and Dec Issue. The review is done by Alan Dyer, a seasoned astrophotographer in Canada.


Here are the highlights in the review:
  1. Great polar alignment. Reticle helps the procedure nicely in northern and southern hemisphere
  2. EQ wedge easy to adjust, yet stable
  3. long battery life - 4 AA lasted for dozen nights of testing
  4. Great for wide angle (35mm - 50mm) astropoto, slight trailing with 135mm (but other brands do the same), but can be corrected with Autoguiding
  5. Overall - compact, well-built, versatile
