  • Not as excited about this item as I wanted to be
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Explorer - April 2, 2021

    Not as happy with this as I thought I would be. Firstly, the images that I see is not at all as great as I thought it would be, and when you are looking at images that are more terrestrial, you need to get a diagonal because it is not included. I was going to send it back, but rationalized that I haven't given it a chance to see what it is capable of. Since I am restricted by the lights of the city, I know I am restricted in seeing many deep sky objects. I can say that I did see the moons craters clearly

  • Newtonian Telescope
    Verified BuyerReviewed by cadkins - May 7, 2021

    Always wanted a telescope, but I wish I would have researched it a bit more before purchasing this particular one. Overall it seems like it is build very well, however, I was not aware that the image would be inverted. After emailing the vendor to see if something was wrong with the telescope I discovered that this is a Newtonian telescope and that the image will be upside down. For me, that will not really work so I am taking it back.
