It lacks that third axis that allows the whole mess to rotate around the vertical. It's only about 1/4 complete.

Guy said, has a field rotator designed!

This scope is pretty good for $210K!

I wish they had it more in focus. The quick shot of Jupiter and its major moons was very fuzzy - as was the quick star image.
