"We quickly set up and aligned the scope with the help of the instructions....The SynScan Go-To computer efficiently located all the objects we set it to, putting them close to the centre of the wide-field view. The quality of the view was good and the light-grasp of the 4-inch main objective lens gave us good views of all types of object, from galaxies such as M31 to nebulae such as the Dumbell Nebula and star clusters like the Pleiades. Overall, this is a nice package that does the job."
BBC Sky At Night Magazine (Nov 2009)



"A compact and versatile photo-visual refractor equally at home delivering wide-field, deep-sky views or exploring terrestrial vistas"
