  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight

For the money its a great deal and perfect beginners scope.

  • Summary: I was looking for a beginners telescope that would be easy to use and compact enough to carry on our boat also. The FirstScope fitted all our needs. We get great views of the moon and also of the mountains out our back door. I love how sturdy it is and that it pivots easily on its own base. Took a little getting used to seeing everything upside down tho. Very easy to use. Very compact so easy to take with us on the boat also.

For the money, a great starting telescope!

  • Summary: The product description is very straight forward. It is what it is. It is an excellent starter scope! Straight out of the box, I was looking at sharp clear views of the moon with my grandson. Any good scope can do that. The positive points with this scope is the ease of operation. The mount is solid with no wiggle as with a tripod. A child can sight in on the moon and stars on their own and enjoy, without having a grownup do the work for them.

Ok product.

  • Excerpt: Mounted on a Celestron Astromaster 114. Was able to take the internals out of the Astromaster finder scope and replaced with the barrel of this one. I have a preference for a finderscope with electronics.

User Review

  • Summary: Got it to introduce my grandkids to the great beyond. The challenge is "teaching" them to use the eyepiece and see what they are looking at. The other challenge is learning that to keep view one must move oppisite direction - up for down and left for right or reverse. Straight through telescopes don't have the view this does without being really big but are much easier for young children to use.

Best Beginner Scope

  • Summary: This is an entry level scope and I would highly recommend this for anyone who is taking their first steps into the subject. Given the lack of any computerized feature and or finderscope, it really makes the newcomer adjust and learn how to spot objects using a reflector telescope with/without an eyepiece.
  • Pros: Ease Of Use, Good Images for the Price
  • Cons: Mount isn't too steady

Celestron First Scope-Brilliant

daemon.singer, Ebay
8 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this for the 13 year old in my life as a birthday present, and the astonishment when he first looked at the moion through it, made it worthwhile. Even with some cloud cover, and a bit of froth around the moon he still found it cool to be able to see the moon so close.

A bargain for a child or adult

Dave, B&H Photo
31 May 2011
  • Excerpt: This telescope is a bargain beyond even what I expected. It's a really good little telescope, especially if you already have some nicer eyepieces. For a 3" telescope that's barely bigger than 2 Coke cans, you can see some great stuff. If you're considering one for a child, it's probably better than you are likely to get even from more expensive scopes from a big box store.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to use, Includes everything, Inexpensive, Strong Construction
  • Cons: None
