Bad optical quality

by Anonymous gift recipient, from United States, CA Written on January 1, 2015
When I focus on any object in the night sky with the Tasco telescope, I see the object and then 3 "echos". The object appears to have a red haze on one end and a blue-violet haze on the other end, which is a distortion. I can see the stars more clearly with just my naked eyes.

For the Tasco microscope, the specimens on the prepared slides have contamination (dust, tiny fibers or hairs) that make seeing what you're supposed to see difficult.

Precise adjustments difficult or impossible; there's too much plastic rather than metal in the moving parts....
Best Used for:
  • Landfill
  • White elephant gift
Would recommend: No

Not worth the money!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on February 27, 2012
I bought this kit for my 8 year old daughter knowing not to expect much quality considering the price, but I did at least hope it would be somewhat useable! Do not buy this unless it is being used as a toy and a replica of what a real telescope / microscope should be! The lenses are so foggy you can't really see much out of them and the particular one that I received had a giant hair or something on the inside of the lens!
Pros: inexpensive replica of telescope / microscope
Cons: Complete garbage!...
Would recommend: No
