    What is drawing you to the scope? It is nice, not what I would have in mind for a first scope, but it could be for many.

    I've had mine for a little over a year and love it. My first "real" scope. Take some practice to get all the settings right and learn how to align and all, but overall have enjoyed it for both visual and some short exposure astrophotography.
