This scope has been around for nearly two years. Reviews aren't great,
but typical for the price and wide field. Google is your friend.

That's what it says, rich-field!
But is it flat field or what?

Just a plain Fraunhofer achromat and a fast one. Will have a bit of colour, not great for planets.

No rich-field scope is good for planets!
Made for photo and wide fields!


1. No, low-power, high-aberration rich-field achromats are the worst for planets.
2. Low-power scopes are poor choices for imaging planets.
3. Colour error bloats star images in deepsky photos.


This scope, I don't think can be used for photo either with that plastic focuser in the back?


Well, any scope can be used as a camera lens as long as it has a way to attach a camera, but it's an alt-azimuth mount so you'd be limited to terrestrial and moon/sun shots.
