Bushnell Northstar 90mm Maksuktov-Cassegrain

I've had this telescope for a couple of weeks, it's my first telescope. The optics are great but the goto feature leaves much to be desired and the Voice feedback is barely worth mentioning.

The azimuth (side to side) movement of the telescope is a bit bumpy (it doesn't rotate as smoothly as it should), which I think is causing issues in the goto feature because I often have to hunt around once I'm near a target, which throws the tracking all off.

Also the tracking, when it does work, wouldn't be smooth enough to take a long exposure photo, it just keeps the object in view for a while.

Mind you Bushnell does come with a life time warranty (at least in Canada) so maybe they can fix this issue.

If I had known this I wouldn't have bought this telescope, possibly the Celestron 4SE would be smoother for around the same price range.
