This telescope has had very little use. I bought it to have a easy to transport, grab-n-go package. At the time my larger scope was a 12" LX200. Now I have a couple of refractors that I use and no longer have the 12". The ETX is getting no use and needs to find a home. It has very good optics and dead-on goto. The initial tripod that Meade makes for this is not very stable so I also bought a used JMI megapod for it. I also have the meade deluxe field tripod that I will include if you prefer it. I like wider fields of view so I added a Parks super wide angle 35mm plossl. I also have used TeleVue 19mm and 15mm panoptics with this scope and have enjoyed great view with it. It is a very good scope that is a joy to use
