no good for how much money it costs

by wasted money, from Canada, MB Written on December 17, 2014
this thing is way over price for what it does. Its hard to use. i received it damaged. it cost a fortune to have shipped. The tripod is cheaply made and a huge pain to make quick adjustments. Save your money...

Novice: Bushnell 1300X100 # 788840

Delivered quickly and all parts there and in good shape, Initial setup is quick and everything looks good and works well together. You can turn it on and then manually point it to something and use the controller to follow the object. Aligning telescope for Go-To function difficult, I have not figured it out after 3 nights trying. Easier to point and look so far. It does not track objects once alinged or I just have not figured it out yet. The voice is difficult to hear and you need to hold it to your ear like a cell phone to hear anything. Red LED lacks contrast and is difficult to read. The 9 volt battery seems to last a while- same battery after 3 nights. Focus works well- good feel. Battery compartment cover not well designed. This is my first scope I bought to take camping and look at the moon and planets. I will learn more as I use it more. I am satisfied with this purchase. GO ><>'
Pros: Quaility optics, good tripod, can use manually-without aligning computer, red dot works well, good focus,
Cons: Manual hard to understand for alignment, voice volume low and hard to understand- no volume control, LED screening hard to read, does not track objects, 4mm eye piece useless, cannot use external power...

Nice scope for a beginner

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on October 14, 2009
As good if not better than a comparable Celestron or Meade. Added this baby to my collection and haven't stopped enjoying. Takes a bit to set everything up.
Pros: Nice optics
Cons: brightness...
