This scope meets my expectations as a novice star-gazer. It was a bit difficult to put together, the instructions could stand to be a bit clearer and have better pictures. (use the picture on the website for some clues.) The lighted site finder was mostly undocumented and I missed the light for a day or two. This really helps to get a good aim at your gazing spot.
For the price this is better than I expected.
Pros: good optics
Cons: poorly written instruction/assembly manual
