      Comments about iOptron SmartStar E MC90 GoTo Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope:

      Really wanted to like this but GoTo would not work. Spent 4 days trying to get it to work. Called Ioptron directly to see if I was inputing any incorrect information (which I wasn't) but unit still would not align. SO FRUSTRATING. Decided to try it manually to see quality of optics etc, which were generic at best. Really disappointing. Jupiter was just a hair bigger with the included 10mm lens compared to 25x100 astro-binocs and had 10X worse quality view. Astro-binocs were so much better. Also, 10mm eyepiece with this scope was like looking through a pinhole. Straining eyes so much to see wobbly/jiggly images. Never seemed to focus to get a clear view other then moon and that wasn't even crisp. Yes tried on multiple clear nights. Waste of time. Also a side note, the tripod is really short. Better get a chair if you're still willing to try this piece of garbage. Next I am trying a 10" dob. Hayneedle is great along with great customer service but this scope and included eyepieces are 25 cent gumball machine quality.

        The MC tube is great! The mount worth what was paid for, but I wish I had the G modle instead the E.
