PROGLEMS!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, GA Written on March 8, 2010
I PUT RECOMMEND YES, BECAUSE ITS A GOOD EASY FIRST TIMER LEARNER TELESCOPE, BUT, THERE SEEMS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS TELESCOPE! ITS THE PRIMARY AND SECONDARY MIRRORS! THEY USE A CHEAP GLUE TO MOUNT THEM! I HAVE NOTICED THE SAME PROBLEM IN PAST REVIEWS ON THIS TELESCOPE! THEY NEED TO SECURE THE MIRRORS IN PLACE ALOT BETTER THAN THEY CURRENTLY DO! USEING A SMALL AMOUT OF CHEAP GLUE DOES NOT WORK! WHEN I BAUGHT THIS TELESCOPE OFF EBAY, WHEN I GOT IT THERE WAS SOME THING LOOSE INSIDE, WHEN I OPENED IT UP THE PRM AND SECND MIRRORS WERE JUST FLOATING AROUND LOOSE INSIDE THE TUBE! I COULD SEE THAT THEY WERE JUST GLUED ON, AND NOT VERY WELL, I SWEE THAT THEY ARE MADE IN CHINA, (FIGURES) YOU WOULD THINK THAT A COMPANY LIKE BUSHNELL, IT WOULD BE MAKE A LITTLE BETTER THAN IT IS! I AM NOT GOING TO RETURN IT! YET! BUT I GLEUED THEM BACK ON AND TESTED IT OUT AND SEEMS OK, WILL TEST OUT FURTHER ON EVENINGS TO SEE HOW GOOD IT REALLY WORKS!
Pros: EASY SETUP
Cons: POOR CONSTRUCTION...
Would recommend: Yes
