I bought this telescope as a gift for my child's 6th birthday. Well worth it. Was able to use it for the first time to view the moon and what an amazing view - the detals of the crators, etc could be seen very well with this telescope. Still need to view other planets in our solar system. I think this telescope has all the right feature set as beginner's telescope. It is light enough to move around easily and the motorized controls are great. Have been using it with batteries so far and it works great. Family was so excited to finally see the telescope in action!
With the coupons Overstock was offering for Christmas, plus the free shipping, the price on this telescope could not be beat. Was very pleased with how fast it arrived at our door. Like the idea that you can tell this telescope what you're looking for and it will find it. You can also point to objects and it will tell you what you're looking at. Very happy with my purchase.
Great product and value for the money, enjoy using this telescope and the detail that it provides is like having the planets right in front of you, I recommend this telescope for not only its value but its quality!
