Excerpt: I purchased this for my 6-year old grandson, and he is really enjoying it. With the help of his dad, he was able to see craters in the moon, and it's just sophisticated enough for him to enjoy for years to come. The carrying case is also a big plus.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses
Excerpt: This product is great for beginners. The challenges we have experienced is the manual doesn't give instructions for all lenses and we can't get it to lock in place once we find an object. It's hard to hold the scope still where someone else can look in once you finally find the object. However, we have still had fun with is, just need a few tweaks.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Didn't tell me I needed additional part to reverse view in sight piece. Binoculars give me a better view of moon than this did, and forget about seeing anything else in the sky it all looks the same as it does with the naked eye just brighter. very unstable, nothing tightens enough to hold telescope stable. I Understand that it is cheap but expected more...Disappointed, definately!
Cons: Difficult To Focus, Poor Lens Quality, Unstable
Excerpt: eyepieces and telescope construction are solid, the mount while thin and lightweight held the telescope well. I bought this for my son who is starting out in this hobby and he loves it. Views of the moon and stars/planets are clear and it is easy to navigate and hold with the controls.
