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. My main complaint with this scope has to be the tripod, which is a little flimsy, and the panning handle which tightens poorly.
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.. Time will tell. My grandson loves it.
Excerpt: Good value for a beginner. The tripod is extremely sturdy and the telescope is great for terrestrial viewing but for celestial viewing I would now spending more on a telescope with larger aperture and light gathering ability.
