Summary: A good all round telescope for the price, have used it on many occasions during the winter months when their as been clear nights to view the stars, planets and other parts of the night sky,. It's very easy to navigate and with the right lens plus a barlow eyepiece which I use with my other Celestron 114mm telescope, will increase the magnification.
Summary: Had bought it as gift for my dad. His interest in astronomy seems to have gone up and seemed quite happy with the scope. However I believe the lenses arent that great and one might have to go in for better ones in order to move fw.
Summary: Bought this having read the rave reviews on 'the net'. It arrived nice and promply and was very easy to set up. Is it me I ask? Everyone else rates this telescope very highly? I have to say that I think that it is a waste of money. I wish that I had spent more money in the first place and bought something decent. There's nothing actually wrong with it but what are you supposed to see with it? The major planets in the sky just look bigger dots of light using this.
