  • Excerpt: I have nothing to say the meade is a good beginner telescope. you can see the moon pretty good. This time of year is the time for Saturn wouldn't use it to see the hurricane but the sphere and the rings.

Great Starter Scope

6 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased the Meade for a friend's birthday. For the money I don't think you will find a better scope. Very easy to assemble and does come with instructions and software for setup. The only downside that I can see someone saying about this scope is the amount of plastic on it. Just remember that you get what you pay for. All scopes in this price range are gonna have plastic parts.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Lets get some things straight

jaralakim, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
5 March 2013
  • Excerpt: ok first of all i understand the price. that being said, lets get some things straight. adjustment knobs are the cheapest plastic. dissappointing! thumbscrews are plastic! even tasco uses metal thumbscrews. focuser and focusing knobs are plastic. i mean in a cheap way. the tripod is excellent. i would not invest in expensive eyepieces for this scope. i would buy good eyepieces just to have if you wanted to upgrade to a better scope.

Great Starter Scope

DNVA, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
12 October 2012
  • Excerpt: For the money this is a great beginners scope. It is very light and portable but still very stable. I bought this to use with my five year old who is a space addict and we have seen some great stuff with it. Stock you get great views of the Planets (Saturn, Jupiter, Venus) and their moons as well as great views of the Moon. I decided to upgrade the Eyepieces and am even able to see some deep space object like open clusters and Galaxies.
