Excerpt: I live in a city with light pollution, heat pollution and lots of houses and trees blocking the horizon. I wanted a scope for viewing the moon, the larger planets, galaxies and have the portability to travel and set up easily.
Excerpt: Considering the price and the fact that in addition to the telescope you get a rucksac and a tripod its good value. However, as for what you can see - its a terrestrial telescope primarily. You won't see much of space.
Excerpt: First of all, the tripod is terrible, as expected. An OK tripod will set you back at least as much as this scope, so my expectations were not high on that front. Besides that, everything else about it is great. The form factor is perfect, and can be carried anywhere in any backpack.
