Great Scope, Mount Should Be Better
Kilcher, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
25 April 2012
Excerpt: The scope itself is outstanding for the price. I don't think you will find a better deal for the beginner or entry level scope. My only complaint is the mount is not sturdy enough for the size of the scope.
Excerpt: It was super easy to put together. Right away my two boys and I took it outside to see the moon and the hillside during the day. The moon was much more exciting.<br />Later that night we looked at the moon again, which they thought we VERY bright compared to during the day.
Excerpt: I bought this for my husband's birthday. It is powerful enough for great views of the moon. Some planets are visible but not in detail. I also purchased the t-ring adaptor which allows me to attach my canon dslr to it.
Excerpt: I purchased this telescope less than 1 week ago for my 11-y-old son. He simply loves it.So far it is perfroming quite well. Unfortunately. as a result of overcast night skies and light pollution, we were not able to view the moon and plantets as I had planned with my son.
Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Excerpt: This is the first Telescope I have ever used and I am very satisfied with it. I couldn't believe when I was able to see Jupiter with the 10mm Eyepiece. For a first time Telescope this is the one you need.
Excerpt: The first thing I did with this telescope was point it at the moon. I was so impressed at the quality and the features that pop out just with the 20mm lens. That same night, I pointed it at Saturn, and I was simply shocked.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
