The first impressions of the assembly were of reassuring stability. The 3-star alignment is a great feature of the Go-To facility. Every time we set up, it accurately place the item we wanted in the field of view of our 25mm eyepiece. The more it was used, the easier is was to go straight to an object or star. The alignment process could not be simpler. In all, the alignment process works so well that you can be on a selected object and tracking it accurately within minutes. Overall the EQ5 SynScan gave a new lease of life to our smaller scope. It is easy to carry and it allowed us to give friends and neighbours a quick tour of the delights of the night skies.
