Conclusion: The optics on the telescope are really good. I was able to see planets really clear. The problems I had were with the software and taking pictures. Even though this is suppose to make finding stars easier, I found it to be unreliable and cumbersome.
Excerpt: Great first telescope, very detailed instructions. Allignment so easy with laser sight, quick setup & easy to use. Only drawback has been the weather, it's been either raining or cloudy since I got it - so I haven't been able to play! Extremely fast delivery and great service. Ordered another item from another ebay seller a few days before this telescope - telescope arrived 1 week earlier! Thanks!
Excerpt: I chose this for my first scope, and so far have found it excellent for Jupiter, Saturn, the moon, star clusters and a handful of the brighter galaxies and nebulae. Aligning, finding and tracking objects is all very quick and straight-forward. Keep in mind though that for the smaller size of the scope, some of the deep-sky objects in the database will simply be too dim to see without a very dark location.
Pros: light, easy to carry, price, portability, user friendly, great first telescope, Beautifully crisp image!
