Nick, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
21 August 2015
Excerpt: I've only had this out one night, and so far I'm very pleased. This is my first telescope, though I've used other peoples' telescopes before - they were refractors with the steriotypical horrible alt-azimuth mount.
Excerpt: First telescope, for a beginner with no prior experience with telescopes. This is a great beginner scope with incredible sights. The first night I had it, we spotted the moon, Venus and Jupiter (with three moons showing clearly!).
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses
Excerpt: The mount is the only part of the deal tha may make this a wrth while purchase, Mirrors are ok..cant collimate this scope, this is a bird jones design, any amatuer that knows anything about these type of scopes knows they are poor performers, and you will never get a IN focus object no matter what...
