    Review by:
    Bought this scope in New Zealand. I also have a more expensive setup but this scope is very easy to set up for quick father son outings. Very good scope, but maybe a little too much plastic in the tripod. The tripod is not all that stable and is prone to vibration and shaking which makes focusing hard. Optically the tube is the same as the ETX observer and the great thing is I can take it off the mount and put it on my more stable iOptron ZEQ25 mount once the kids have finished and are in bed. Over all happy with this scope. I just wish Meade had a larger Mak OTA available. Hopefully in the future. Good job Meade on the StarNavigator NG series. (Posted on 8/18/2017)
