Awesome!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, VA Written on February 4, 2009
This is the first time I purchased a decent telescope, and it was for my daughter for Christmas. The whole family loves it! We've seen craters on the moon, and a planetary nebula so far. With six kids, we have a set budget for Christmas, and we certainly got an excellent piece of equipment for what we paid. Also, I ordered just a few days before Christmas, and received my purchase on time without paying extra shipping. Thanks.
Pros: value for money, easy to use
Cons: none that I can see...
Would recommend: Yes

Great gift for whole family

The thing looks cool, works good so far but no moon yet to look at. Once you have the viewfinder lined up, it works much better to find what you're looking for. Haven't seen any stars yet because the first night the viewfinder was not set up and the next night was cloudy. My 10 y.o. loved it as a present. I am confident that once we get the moon focused we will have more fun with it.

The screws for the tripod are cheap. The wing nuts strip very easily. Tripod is not foldable which makes it a pain to store away.
Pros: Great price and good quality
Cons: cheap hardware...

Good Scope for general stargazing

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AL Written on March 10, 2008
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...
Would recommend: Yes
