Excerpt: I ordered this telescope due to online reviews on B&H. I'm glad I chose this optic. The build quality is good especially the tripod. Assembly is simple and intuative. I was viewing the moon and Saturn within an hour.
Excerpt: Got this as a Christmas gift for my son. Really nice telescope, best price I could find on the Internet, & free delivery. This isn't a small box this thing comes in, and with free delivery, this deal couldn't be beat. And delivered on time. Even with the Christmas rush and my last minute ordering.
Excerpt: I actually bought this for my grandson for Christmas He picked it out and I could not have done any better. The ordering was extremely easy and the delivery was very smooth. I was thanked for my order, told when it was in the que and when it was ready for shipment.
Excerpt: Received this as my first ever scope and its not bad, but not anything special really. Really the main thing you will be viewing with this is the moon, which you can actually get some good detail with. Jupiter can also be seen but is less detailed though i can make out some rings.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight
Cons: Difficult To Focus, Poor Lens Quality, Unstable
Excerpt: This was a gift for my 10 yo grandson for Christmas . It was delivered quickly when I ordered it and in good condition. Easy to put together and lightweight enough to lift and move. It appears to be sturdy.<br /><br />Have not had enough time to see much since it has been cloudy at night..
