Hi!

It is a highly portable nice looking 4" scope. Surprising the 102SLT i had now gives pretty sharp view.

Pros
1) Fast set up and it can be break into smaller pieces to transport to the field.
2) Pretty a tough scope, can take knocks and still in good condition.

Things to improve on
1) Need an upgrade for diagonal and eyepieces. The default eyepieces and diagonal are good for a start.
2) You will need some cable not commonly found at home to update the firmware.

Cheers!
