"Lovely device overall, looking forward to learning with it. I had it in mind for a number of months after a recommendation. In the early stages, yet to get the computer alignment process right but seems decent enough viewing once I line it up manually. A few small slight scratches on the casings, but has no bearing on the performance. Recommended."
