Does anybody know anything about Europa Telescopes by Orion Telescopes? .I have just been offered a 6" one .It is an Equatorial Mount It was hardly ever used . Any comments ? I am living in the middle of Dublin , Ireland , so the conditions are not all that good for nightwatching . It cannot be transferred to a GO TO . It seems OK and sturdy , but I have not tried it yet . Ant comments and thank you .

Hi Garry.

No personal experience, but I happened to be going over some scope reviews earlier, and remember coming across these two, which seem to be for that scope:

Also, note that the Orion in Europe is a different company from the Orion in the US. I think. At least, that used to be true.
