It looks nice (remove last L from Kahis link). How does it work with glasses? Can you attach a camera to take pictures through it?

Yes, it works fine with glasses. There's a version (XTZ-E I think) with a separate optical path for a camera. I haven't tried it.

This scope isn't without downsides though. It is not parfocal (ie. focus changes when you zoom in or out). Worse, the focus balance changes slightly with magnification. In three years I have had to change the power cord socket - easy since it is the same cord used for computers - resolder some power cord connections in the light source.
