I purchased one of these scopes recently and am extremely pleased with it!

I chose it over the similar, but cheaper Celestron C6, because this scope had two eyepieces (instead of only one with the C6), built in battery power (a big plus because it saves having to buy a power tank / loads of AA batteries), wi fi control via a free app on my phone / tablet (a major plus for me as a techie!) and inproved alignment accuracy over other "previous generation" SCTs.

Assembly is a doddle - screw the fully pre-assembled scope and mount onto the pre-assembled tripod, add the finder and you are done - 10 - 15 minutes, most of which is spent unpacking the scope!

Size and weight wise it is fine for a 6 ft male (me) and at around 20kg is easy to move (although you would not want to walk far with it!).

The optics are first rate and it gives crisp views of the moon and planets, and resolves stars down to a point - the quality of views is at least as good as my much-more-expensive Swarovski ATX85 spotting scope.

Control from the app is so easy its unbelievable - a trillion times easier than the fiddly hand controls of previous generation scopes. Accuracy is excellent.

There is also the facility to use the scope in manual mode so you can move the scope at will independently of the app / controller.

I can't find fault with this scope - it is an SCT for the 21st century and I recommend it to astronomers of all ages and abilities: It is currenty on special offer at a very reasonable price so buy one soon before they sell out!

Advantages: Ease of use with the app.
Built in battery.
Great optics.
Excellent build quality.

Disadvantages: None
