Aurora's XT6i

Bought Aurora an XT6i to replace her ETX-80 with.  Impressions so far are good.  The instructions for assembly could have been better (parts better labled).  It took a while to get it together.  Optics are great, and the object locator is spot on.  We took it for a test run last night and it zeros in on the objects just fine.  Orion looked magnificent.  I am going to replace the 30mm finder with a new 50mm finder that I have.

Good timing on its arrival as I'm doing a public outreach for her school in a few weeks.  Going to need the extra scope!
