Bought this several weeks ago and have used it a couple of times so far. Unit is not self leveling but easy to get a 360 degree level setup. Scope is very clear and bright with the single focus dial on top, can't say anything bad about it and very reasonable priced the tripod is very good and maintains a steady support when all 3 legs are stepped into the ground as noted in the instructions also comes with a sturdy padded box for the scope and an 8 foot grade rod. You can spend a lot more money for a transit but the end result will be just as accurate with the DeWalt. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
