Legacy Reviewer's Review of Bushnell ARES 6 inch Compact Dobsonian Telescope OpticsPlanet Edition

Almost ordered another more expensive 6-inch.
Came across this via word of mouth from astronomy forums. Two eyepieces, price, and free shipping made this the OBVIOUS choice for someone looking for first real telescope who didn't want to/couldn't break the bank. (fyi Bushnell - don't change anything re: price, shipping, eps or risk losing positive vibes/reviews this telescope is now receiving)
Extremely satisfied and excited about the telescope.

Pros: Solid, good contruction, TWO eyepieces, price, free shipping, oh, and great telescope!
Cons: Allen wrench, BARELY made it through assembly. (use your own, shouldnt complain about free wrench I guess)
