I never met a scope I didn't want to keep. "My God, it's full of stars." Searching the skies since 1966!

Very nice setup!

I use my Sharpstar 61 (similar size as your scope) for imaging, but before I set it up that way, I used it briefly for visual. Super easy setup. Super clean snappy views. The scope can also do very well for wildlife observing!
