The only two things I don't like about my Atlas are:

1. It is extremely noisy. So noisy that my daughter can hear it through her bedroom window.

2. It is extremely slow. So slow that TheSkyX used to time out on it until I got the guys at SB to make the focuser timeout time user settable. (CCDSoft always waited, I guess, forever if need be.)

Other than that, I love it.

I wish my Optec 3" Pyxis had the same non-marring Zero Tilt attachment mechanism as the FLI Atlas. That's one of the particularly good features of the FLI Atlas.
