Nice Telescope

I purchased this telescope for myself a couple weeks ago. It was a great purchase. The telescope works perfectly and i could see very nice close ups of the moon and some planets. I could see Saturn and Jupiter with its moons no problem without even using the magnifier. I recommend this to anybody looking to buy their first telescope.
