Great Product

by KD, from United States, OH Written on January 7, 2015
I agonized over a telescope to buy for our 8 year old son this past Christmas. I think the agonizing paid off and I found a winner! The Barska Starwatcher Refractor telescope looks good, didn't cost a lot, was easy to assemble and so far has been easy to use and capture some awesome views in the sky. My son loves it and my husband and I have also enjoying viewing. I recommend for first time buyrs especially children....
Pros:
  • easy assembly
  • Priced well.
  • child friendly
Cons:
  • none so far
Would recommend: Yes

This item was purchased for my 12 yr old grandson, and has proven to a great gift! He set up the telescope himself and quickly learned to focus it and direct it view desired objects....

Nice telescope

I live in the mountains so it has been great for looking at the surrounding peaks and for wildlife spotting. It has been great for looking at the moon too....

Great Telescope for beginner

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on December 31, 2009
We purchased this for my 8 year old daughter who is very interested in looking at the night sky. It is great, works well, is easy to use. My only complaints are the following: It really didnt come with instructions, so you will need a companion book to help you find stars and really get the most out of your telescope and the tri-pod is very flimsy, one of the legs snapped off ours on the 2nd day. We were able to glue it, but we will have to purchase a sturdier one once the weather gets warm and she is in the backyard using it nightly.
Pros: Perfect for beginners, easy to use
Cons: directions were lacking, flimsy tri-pod...
Would recommend: Yes
