Great Beginner Telescope!

Lyle G., Newegg
3 January 2012
  • Summary: This is a great starter telescope, though don't base your opinions on those highest magnifications. The 'scope just isn't big enough for them. In it's stock trim, it's just able, in my experience, to see the moons of Jupiter on the included medium eyepiece.
  • Pros: This telescope is inexpensive and great for viewing planets and the moon, as well as terrestrial objects. It's very light, which makes it incredibly easy to haul around, and the user manual is thorough for newbies, and even with my physics background, made finding the magnification of various len...
  • Cons: This telescope effectively maxes out around 80x. The equipment included can theoretically hit 225x, but the aperture size is much too small to let in enough light to use that. It makes the choice of high-power lens somewhat baffling, as even the moon doesn't put off enough light for good contrast...

Good value for the money

  • Excerpt: This was purchased as a gift for my nephew. He is a beginner in astronomy and I wanted to get him a telescope that was easy to use and would last him a few years. It was very easy to assemble and the instructions were straight forward.

Worth Rs. 100

Sobhan, Amazon
27 April 2015
  • Summary: I tried several times to gaze into the sky to spot what the other reviewers mentioned. Nothing is seen when the Barlow lenses are used. Absolutely NOTHING. The small lenses are doing okay job (only spotted moon with clarity) but that can be done by a normal binocular/monocular of Rs.100 worth.

Best for First Timers

Prashant, Amazon
13 April 2015
  • Summary: Product is nice for beginers, Best Part :- Moon looks superb, Jupiter also looks cool, View finder and main lense doesnt always coincide. Removing the full cap to focus and then removing only the middle cap helps for a better image specially with stars.
