Thanks for telling us about your experiences with your Lightbridge. I think your review and telescope use is a great snapshot of someone's typical experience with this fun telescope. Most of all it is great to hear that you use it a lot. The best telescopes are the ones that get used. Clear skies!

I currently own a Sky-Watcher 12" Dob and wish I had read this review before I ordered it. The Lightbridge has a true 2" focuser - unlike the Sky-Watcher (which requires two adapters and a bit of collimation nightmare.) Once I sell the SW12, I'll probably order the Lightbridge.
