Great telescope for a novice. May need to spend a little bit more money improving the mount and tripod when you start getting more seriously into astronomy.

  • Excerpt: The telescope arrived quickly and was well packaged for transporting abuse. It arrived in tip-top condition. Setting up was fairly straight forward, and only took a short while to complete. I used it the first night I could (weather-wise), and was highly delighted with the results.
