Recently got into viewing the night sky, planets and stargazing and I wanted a quality telescope that gave me decent views of the objects I wanted to see in space and was also affordable within my budget.
I came across the "Bushnell Ares 6" DOB" and after comparing it to other telescopes that had similiar options and specs. I believe it is the best value for all the telescope you receive.
On my first night just using the 2 eyepieces supplied with this telescope I was able to see jupiter and it's 4 moons with very good clarity, viewing our moon was breathtaking, and after increasing the magnification by dropping in a 2X Barlow lens I had purchased separately the views were just awesome! I was just able to make out some detail on Jupiter and got some jawdropping closeup views of the countless craters on our moon.
Very Happy with this purchase, Excellent telescope at an excellent price!
Pros: Easy to use, quality parts, image quality, Great Price!
Cons: Size - A little bigger than I thought it would be.
