  • Nice buy for beginners
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Darshil - August 23, 2021

    Nice telescope for beginners. It is easy to setup and starting to explore the skies. It does take some time to get used to how to align the objects in the sky but once you get the hang of it its pretty nice. We were even able to get some photos of moon using just a phone and without a mount. Attached a few images - they are taken using iphone xs and added some filters.

  • It is worth this price.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by JupiterSaturn - December 26, 2020

    It is a very good telescope. Through it, I easily see five satellite of Jupiter, and took a clear picture with Saturn on Dec 21 when Jupiter and Saturn meet.

  • The best choice for a newbie on a budget
    Reviewed by BrianH - October 12, 2021

    A wonderful starter scope. An excellent alternative to a computerized telescope. In my experience, the Starsense App has been a little off, however that is because it is hard to keep your phone lined up perfectly in the mirror. The included red-dot finder is not of a very high quality, however it gets the job done. Very easy to set up and use. I have so far seen a total of 3 galaxies (just fuzzy blobs, but they're hard to see for most), 2 nebulae, probably 2 dozen star clusters, great detail on the moon, Jupiter (with cloud bands) and its moons, Saturn, Venus (too bright to see detail), and more recently the tiny blue blob called Uranus.
