Summary: Gave this to our daughter for her 6th birthday, she loves it....Although it can be tough to find everything she wants to see. You must be VERY steady & carefull to not touch the scope after you've found what your looking for.
Summary: I had always wanted one of these... No disappointment here. Assembly was easy. Went back to get another for a gift and they were sold out. Everyone in my family loves it. Knew I should have gotten 2.
Summary: I have purchased this as a Crhristmas gift for my boyfiriend and I have my fingers crossed that it's going to be perfect. I read reviews on this site and many other sites and found this to be an excellent telescope. He loves all things about the moon, stars, meteors and weather.
Summary: I agree with previous comments, it is a good telescope for beginners. Just the price is a little higher than for other similar. For moon observations I recommend you to search another filter than Celestron.
the mount is very poor and when moving scope the action is not smooth ...

Summary: the mount is very poor and when moving scope the action is not smooth no matter how you adjust it. Once you manage to focus on something the lenses do their job fine, it's just the mount that is a problem.
