    ideal backyard scope

    By

    I specifically wanted a 4" Mak with a motorized but NOT computerized mount for simple backyard planetgazing. After doing a lot of research on the mount I found this -- and bonus, it comes with a rather good Mak tube (a couple online forums sung its praises, so I was confident when ordering). My viewing with it is urban-seeing-limited (i.e., the 'scope is fine) and the mount tracks wonderfully even when only hurredly aligned with Polaris. The included eyepieces are okay, but you'll be happier with a couple low-end Plossls, and the solar filter is a great addition. I expected the mount motor to be a battery hog, but so far it's been gentle on my NiMH batteries.

    Fun Device

    By

    I bought this device to make panoramic pictures and do some astronomical photography. It functions either as a camera directional control or as a telescope. Use the included brackets to attach your camera with standard tripod mount, then program this device to rotate and tilt in whatever order you want. You can even mount a DSLR on the lower mount and use an extension to mount a GoPro above it and take pictures/video with both cameras simultaneously. The included telescope allows you to track astronomical objects automatically. If you buy a separate T-Mount adapter, you can hang a camera on the end to take pictures rather than just look through it. It does everything I have wanted to but I have not used the telescope for astronomical pictures yet. The major point I think you need to consider is whether you have a suitable platform for astronomy. Although there is a tripod mount on the bottom, it's intended to be used as a table-top device, with leveling feet, etc. If you don't have a suitable platform, you may want to consider a similar device intended for tripod use. The motion control switches work fine but it seems odd that the button panel moves with rotational controls. That means the buttons move as you press them to rotate the camera/telescope position. Overall, it's a nice device and an excellent value
