Mine arrived today in great condition. From First Light Optics in Exeter, UK to my door in four days, not bad!
The SynScan Pro app connected quickly, and I did a fake alignment indoors that went well. Goto’s seemed to be accurate and the app is easy to navigate. The help section said that it will work with SkySafari 5 and gave the port number and what IP address to use, but SkySafari kept giving me a message that it connected, but the scope wasn’t responding. It may take more fooling around to get that right, but the SynScan app works well on its own.
FWIW, I tried the mount on the standard tripod as well as my Berlebach Report, and I think that I like it a bit more on the stock tripod. Time and swapping around will tell though.
Oh, and the Mak is a cute little thing too. I will probably trash the cheap diagonal and use one of my other 1.25” diagonals, and give the two eyepieces away.
So so far I am very pleased with this package and I can’t wait to get it out.
Thanks to Dr. Who and BinoGuy for pointing me to this one.
On edit: I know that photos are mandatory, but my iPhone photos come up sideways on here. I’ll have to wait to use a computer to post them.
