Great value for a hobby telescope

by Phil, from United States, CA Written on August 29, 2014
I first noticed the sturdy construction when assembling it. The tripod is thick and the casing seems pretty durable. It's easy to set up, change viewing lenses and it's also easy to maneuver with large or small adjustments. The aiming mechanism is handy, but still requires some fine-tubing manual adjustment through the viewing lense. The magnification is better than I expected for this price. I can see details galore on the moon and can also see the rings of Saturn. We live close to the ocean and can get impressive views of fishing and freighter ships miles off the coast....

Nice entry level refractor

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on December 10, 2012
If you are new in astronomy, this is a good choice to begin with. 70mm is just nice, not too small but adequate for simple astronomy observation. Coated optics have great constrast and transmission. Included is 25 & 9mm Kneller eyepiece, which is quite good in quality. Tripod is 1.25'' sturdy enough for simple observation. Tracking will be a small problem as alt-alz mount might be difficult to move around manually. But overall still a very good telescope for such a price
Pros: Low chromatic aberation
Cons: Small objective...
