    Great telescope, but you must make a commitment of time to learn how to use. Not a set up and use. But given the commitment of time and learning, it is great!


  • Not as good for price

    If you're expecting to get deep into the Stars this is not the purchase for you. You would be better off getting a good pair of binoculars. All you will see in the sky with the naked eye is a small white dots and what you will see with this is a slightly bigger small white dot.


  • So far so good
