Great little Telescope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IA Written on February 19, 2010
It look like a toy. But This Is a real D-76mm by F-300 30x telescope, i have heard that there a 15x eyepeace out there. I don't know how, Or were to get it... Realy you don't need it. 30x is a great view. Realy Easy to use. I like to hold it and scan the sky.
Pros: Vary Portable, well made, Good Optic
Cons: Can't use Filters with the eye peace, and can't find other eyepeace....
Would recommend: Yes

30x telescope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MI Written on October 25, 2009
Well, what can I say? This telescope shows clear imaging and very simplistic eyepiece makes it easy to use. However, it's corkscrew style using 2 pins prohibits the use of other eyepieces. For planetary observation, 30x is adequate to view Jupiter with it's moons and if you look real carefully, you can just see a couple of it's cloudbands. I find it very difficult to locate objects in the sky w/o a finder scope. This goes back to the eyepiece selection. Supposively, it has a 12mm eyepiece. It's 350 mm in focal length. If there was a 25 mm wide angle corkscrew eyepiece available, it would enable the user to find much more at ease. Looking at various Nebulas and the Andromeda Galaxy, you're better off using an standard 7x50 binoculars that can give you as much detail if not more. 30x is way too much for this telescope for deep space observation. It took me 5 seconds with my 7x50 to find the Andr Gxy versus 10 minutes using the Tasco. I really frawned on these facts. If more eyepieces were available, I would give this scope a much better rating. In ways I can recommend this product but then again, I wouldn't recommend it. It's a toss up.

For land viewing, this is the only reflector telescope to give an upright image. Objects are clear and the permanent base mount makes it very easy to use. Again, sometimes it's hard to find objects with 30x going back - there should be more eyepieces available.
Pros: Very lightweight, easy to use eyepiece. Permanant bas...
