I recently retired from military service and I wanted to jump into astrophotography with both feet. This piece of kit is a perfect harmony of field expedient deployment and precision optics. I absolutely love it!

Everything I ever wanted in a light weight portable grab an go system. The 8" EdgeHD line of optics are superior to any other SCT I've ever looked through in that size range. Crisp and clear with pin-point stars all the way to the edge of the field of view. I use a 100degree 14mm high quality eyepiece for my back yard observing in less than good seeing conditions and the details are amazing! I could not be happier! The Advanced VX mount is the replacement to the very popular CG5-ASGT mounts from Celestron. These new mounts, AVx, are outstanding! After doing the initial 2 star alignment I then add 4 calibration stars. The pointing is spot on putting objects right in the middle of the eyepiece. No hunting for objects outside the field of view. Using the All Star Polar Alignment routine that is built into the hand controller I can get polar alignment VERY accurate! I did a 17 minute drift test recently and the star remained dead center in the cross hairs at 2000mm F/10! I can regularly get up to two minutes of unguided round stars with just a few throw aways. When I guide I can expose up to my sky conditions which are around six minutes most nights. This is without any throw-aways unless a shooting star, satellite or airplane crosses through the exposure. I could not be happier! I highly recommend this setup and I have my eye on the Starsense coming out mid-2013 as well.
