excellent scope and service Excellent scope to get out into the back garden quickly when the skies clear. We are going to upgrade the eyepieces and red dot finder when we get used to it. Tripod and mount are excellent and sturdy. RDF had a short circuit; Harrisons are replacing it immediately. They are 5 star. (12/12/2019) Trevor Morgan - Orpington
