    Both that scope and this scope are used for casual back yard observing in the green color zone.

    The focuser on my scope needed adjustment, as all focusers do, regardless of their cost.

    At 900mm focal length, scopes don't need finder scopes.

    The tube rings are typical light weight cast 116mm orion/synta/celestron tube rings but painted white to match the colors of the scope.

    If you purchase a scope to brag about what you own in astronomical forums, and try to impress others who think the quality of a telescope depends on how much you spent on it, then you should spend $6000 on a takahashi tsa-120 (which is how much it would cost to outfit a tsa to the level this scope comes, including tube rings, diagonal and eyepieces and hardcase ) so you can feel like you are the king of the forums and king of the star parties.

    The reality of this scope, is that the chinese can now produce extremely high quality optics that can compete head on with the best in the world, visually, at ridiculously low prices.

    Visually, none of that maters, because its the optics which define a quality telescope, not its bolt on features.

    The moon centered in the field of view lacks any chromatic aberration, but towards the periphery there is a hint of color fringing.
