This was purchased for my grandson. I was impressed with the quality. This is a heavy made telescope and should last years without a problem. My son who has a very expensive telescope thinks this is a great learning telescope. You can clearly see the Rings of Saturn and everything is user friendly. Great investment for starters and intermediate users! Quality- low price - Can't go wrong on this purchase!

it was great until the eyepiece
its well made and a beautiful piece but no one is mechanical and we absolutely cant figure out how to get the last eyepiece attached and the glass keeps popping out and rolling away. We scour the directions but it just makes no sense to us. Its out on the balcony but useless.

All is see are stars the same as i could see with my naked eye. The telescope is very shaky even when i set it on my concrete patio. I spent $100 on this for my son. Its alright but definitely dont see any planets.

Good optics, bad manual targeting system.
CON - aiming the telescope using the viewfinder doesn't work. The adjustments to the view finder are so mediocre as to be useless. The actual telescope is fine...if you can find your target. The alignment instructions say find something on the ground, far away in your telescope and then line up the view finder.
1. The unit shakes to much when you are trying to align the viewfinder. By the time you get it where you want (using 3 set screws) your main telescope as moved off the target.
2. 3 set screws to adjust viewfinder.
3. Hard to find anything.
