Part one covered my brief impression of the physical characteristics of the telescope after setup and a brief night out under the stars. Now that I have had a chance to take the ETX-LS out for a few long observing sessions, how did the ETX-LS perform optically? Find out more.
Mostly good Chinese made scope with just a couple of irritations.
A unbeatable combo for Oklahoma's rare great nights.

Disassembly, transport, and other adjustments to SCTs may result in gross miscollimation, where no "classic doughnut" is available to help in the adjustment process.
