      5.0 I heard good things about Agena, reviews


      Easy to Use,Strong Construction


      Hand Control Position,Heavy


      Purchased Nov. 2013 and it's been cloudy and or cold constantly since then. I did attach my nex5n camera and shoot the moon from the garage door and tried a mock allinement which seemed to work ok. This is a very nice scope, shipping was quick and it arrived in perfect condition, I would buy again. Two cons, 1)has to be separated to move around because of it's weight (I built a 3 wheel dolly, now no problem ). 2) Left off hand control bracket and attached a 3M removable coat hook on back flat surface, it holds the control at perfect angle and not in the way of alt. lock knob.

      Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
      Was this review helpful? Yes / No
