Great First Scope

  • Excerpt: The scope is great in general, and you can see surprising amounts of details in deep space objects. Aligning the GOTO can take a few tries, make sure you set everything up correctly and make sure the stars you use to align are perfectly centered (maybe invest in an eye piece with cross hairs) then you should have minimal troubles, if you still have troubles with the align try one of the other alignment options, Auto two-star align works well I've found.
  • Pros: light, easy to carry, price, portability, light weight, user friendly, great first telescope
  • Cons: tripod quality, May encourage you to buy a big telescope!

Fantastic second telescope!!

  • Excerpt: This is my second telescope and I love it!! Making adjustments while looking at an object is so easy with the hand control and the motor that controls the scope. The only cons I can think about are at times the tripod can be a little wobbly and when doing a sky align can take a few goes depending on the stars you point it at. The guys at OzScopes really know their stuff and have a fantastic service, very prompt delivery, thank you!!
  • Pros: easy to carry, Good price, quality +++

Great Scope

5 March 2011
  • Excerpt: This scope is great, and I think it is an awesome scope for beginners/hobbyists. I live in light polluted Perth, and even then I think i could see a hint of the Cassini division in Saturn, the band of Jupiter, and nebulosity in Orion. I have yet to get the alignment dead accurate, but its probably just me making silly mistakes when I align. The tracking isn't dead on either, but i'm sure that will come when it is aligned properly!
