  • Great for a budding astronomer!

    Quality : Good Value : Excellent

    This Telescope was purchased as a Holiday gift for my daughter. PROS: 1. Box arrived on time, undamaged (double packed) 2. Craftsmanship was good, especially given the low price. Based on other models in this price range that I looked at in department stores, this was put together much better, and with similar materials. 3. The magnification and features seem comparable or higher than competitor models. 4. The short barrel and light weight makes it easy for my 10 year old daughter to carry and position. 5. Fully adjustable tripod base & the manual controls provide granular movement for excellent focus on far away celestial objects (mostly the moon, at this magnification). CONS: 1. In order to achieve different levels of magnification you have to switch lenses (as with similar models). Because of the way this telescope was made, the lenses are not well protected during the transition, and children are likely to finger optics and the lenses are prone to scratching, or being dropped in the process (has not happened to us yet - but we're constantly reminding her to be careful). Otherwise, this is a great sturdy, child-resistant beginner telescope. 2. The tripod is small, and it must be used on a table or other raised surface which may not be readily available where you are trying to set up.

    Quality : Good Value : Excellent

    This is my first telescope. That's why I bought 2. It's always more fun to share a wonderful learning experience with someone else. To look up and realize how big everything really is, can make one feel small, to share it with someone else you love, makes you realize the importance of each other.

  • Nice!

    This telescope is extremely cute. it's small enough to sit on the window sill and light enough to carry on trips out of town. i have not yet used it to look at the night sky as i live in the city, but it's been great for people-watching on the busy street outside my window. bought it to take on trips to the countryside. the content of the CD is intimidating, so i think i will just look at the moon.

  • Great beginners telescope

    The telescope was bought for an adult. Not wanting to put too much money into something that might get used a few times then forgotten about, this was a nice option. However, the telescope is better than expected. It is used several times a week. There are things that you need to learn how to use but it's not so bad. The telescope has given him an opportunity to see craters on the moon and much more as if they were right next to him. Great beginners telescope. It is all you need.

    • How accurate was the sizing? Perfect and portable!
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The telescope has awesome clarity for it's size.
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? There were no defects or damages upon arrival.

Hello jmh130, this telescope utilizes a refractor optical system. Refractor optical systems will produce upside down images unless used with a diagonal. Hope this information was helpful. Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 11, 2013
