Hello, over the years I have benefited a lot from browsing discussions here. So a big thanks to all before my first post.

I was looking at Celestron 5SE as a candidate for a compact quick grab scope when I came across this Bresser MCX-127 GoTo EQ-AZ.

Couldn't find reviews or user experiences anywhere. So please help.

 

Main requirements:

(1) Good views (2) Very portable - easily fits small car boot (3) Easy and quick setup (4) Around $800 (5) Possibility of toying with photography

I can't speak for this mount, but it uses the same handcontroller and software as the Exos-2 I used to own.   Not impressive.  Lots of bugs in the software they seem to have no interest in fixing.
