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: 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..
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.
Excerpt: This was a Christmas gift for the grandchildren. The whole experience from the research of the product to the ease of the web site to receiving the product in short time was a blessing. I can not express what a positive experience this was.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction

Excerpt: This was my first telescope and I've moved on to some serious equipment since. I had alot of fun with this scope and learned alot. I was amazed when I could see the rings of saturn. On a truly dark night, if you know where to look, I've actually seen the whirlpool galaxy with it.
Pros: Easy to Use, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Bought this telescope for the family for Christmas. My son, 8, and I absolutely love it! We spent half an hour last night looking at Jupiter and three of it's moons. Of course, it wasn't until we referenced the included software (TheSky running on Mac OS X) that we even knew what we were looking at.
