decent refractor telescope

  • Excerpt: good starting refractor microscope. don't use up your batteries, buy the battery pack. it doesn't use up much power. i think the hard part is calibrating the scope with the telescope and understanding the alignment process. also get the 2x barlow for better star and planet viewing.

Perfect telescope for anyone

  • Excerpt: This is a fantastic telescope for a beginner or experienced astronomer. By upgrading the eyepieces and diagonal you'll get a high quality observing instrument. Beginners will have a small learning curve but once you understand the controls you'll be able to tour the universe.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Good value, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Very good front lens
  • Cons: Cheap eyepieces diagona
