Acceptable quality.

Haven't had much of an opportunity to use it much here. Mosquito City where I live, snow in the winter. Spring and fall are best. Swamp in the back and front. Makes a great Mosquito hatchery. I could use another counterweight for the mount. 2.3 pounds is insufficient. I just might have to purchase the Dobsonian counterweight that comes with 2 counterweights.
