  • Excerpt: A very cheap telescope with limitations as a result. The tripod really needs to be higher, as you will find yourself sitting on a chair or kneeling to use it much of the time. I found the finderscope to be useless, perhaps because I wear glasses. I have to sight along the tube and then use a low power eyepiece to scan for the object I'm looking for. A proper finderscope would probably be a very useful addition.
  • Pros: light, easy to carry, price, portability
