The good point of this guidescope is the wide aperture f3,2, which helps to find even a faint star in the field of view. The drawback is the short focal length of only 160mm which may not be the best choice for guiding telescopes with a focal length longer than 750mm. I also tried to use it for imaging but, as you can expect, the chromatic aberration is noticeable and the stars are pinpoint-shaped only in the center of the field of view. It is supplied with rings and non-rotating focuser, which it's a good value for the price

I've used this a few times now and I've gotten pretty good guiding with it even though the stars look a bit strange. They get kind of a halo/coma around them which makes it a bit bothersome to focus the scope. I've experienced both sub-arcsecond and over 2 arcsecond results so I believe it's capable of good guiding but I know when I get those worse values I'm wondering if I should have gone for a better quality scope because it's just another factor that I have to consider in searching for issues.
Basically you get what you pay for.
