We recently had the opportunity to handle this telescope and were struck by its light weight of 24 lb relative to its substantial size. The benefit here is that you don't have to spend $5000 plus to support a refractor of this size. New tricked-out accessories also accompany this scope such as a feature-packed carrying case, 3" rack & pinion focuser, and a 2" carbon-plated adjustable dielectric diagonal. Overall, this scope is a great option for someone looking for a large high-end refractor packed full of accessories.
