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.

  • 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

Quick Scope

  • Summary: This item is inexpensive and, once set up, is easy to use. Mounting accessories were helpful. Fine tuning requires patience because the three barrel knobs produce someone shaky results. But, with patience, one cannot beat it at this price. Accompanying lens bonuses have been tried yet. Star chart from the disk is good. There were some confusing moments in finding distant objects due to font size and trying to figure out exact location of named objects.
  • Pros: Easy to use; Flexible mounting hardware included; covers for objective and eyepiece; nice software
  • Cons: Fine adjustment knobs produce iffy results

Celestron First Scope-Brilliant

daemon.singer, Ebay

  • 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.
