Great scope for the money!

I would give this a 90/100. The fit, finish, weight and functions are all top notch. The focus does a great job all the way to 60X which is rare. Good for terrestrial as well as astronomical use. One minor ding, and was the same with my 60mm version of this same model. At advanced magnification, it seems that there is some minor spec or something on the mirrors (?) that causes a small section of the image to be not in focus. Anyone know how to rectify this, let me know! But quite pleased over all and appreciated Nicholas, the new proprietor of All-Star.
