30x and 30mm telescope?

Postby borris83 on Thu Feb 12, 2009 3:25 am

Hi, I will be getting a 30x and 30mm telescope. I have heard people saying that it is just a toy. But I want to know how much I can see using it. Pls don't suggest me about other good telescope right now since I am planning to buy a really good telescope after a few months.

But right now I could know how much detail I could get in the sky using this 30x and 30mm telescope.

Yes, that is a toy, but, even so, you can certainly see craters on the moon, see Jupiter as a small disc. Possibly a few of the very brightest star clusters as well.
