I can't believe that they feel the little plastic squares are good enough.,My $400 Z8 came with a much better system.,
And the focuser is kinda lame as well.,It turns and works good.,but it's soo short you can't turn it without catching your fingers between the tube and the knob.,HELLO,,.
Last but not least.,The tension adjustment for Alt.,With no tension it moves ok in an upward motion but is harder on a downward pull.,add tension and it gets harder in both directions.,and they try to use tension to off set balance issues.,again..come on.,??.,For $900 they should do better.,my two cents.,lol.,
I hope the optics make up for the lack of quality in the other essential parts of the set up.,.
I have gotten it to move ok in az.,and a small counter weight may help the balance issue.,.time under the stars will determine what happens next.,
