This is my second Newtonian reflector telescope over 45 years, so I have experience owning one. I have used many others over the years too. The packaging was immaculate, the instructions were refreshingly accurate and plenty of color photos. I can't remember the last time I have read instructions this clear. The Quick Guide is all you need to assemble the telescope and tripod. However, the complete instruction book is comprehensive and will teach the new astronomy hobbyist quite a bit. I was given this as a gift by my wife and son; I am absolutely thrilled with it. I look forward to many years use. I definitely recommend it as a great astronomy tool.Read More

Horrible i bought it as a gift, and it came all Tore up in the box and the rods were broken and cracked.... I WILL NEVER BUY FROM THIS COMPANY AGAINRead More
love Overstock and all of it's benefits...people join Club O it is so worth it !! this product is outstanding and the telescope view is Exactly what I was looking for. Great gift idea !!!Read More
i haven't aligned the finderscope but i got to see the moon and jupiter and i just randomly spun it around to see if i could see anything and a saw well, i dont know what but it was really cool so i say that you should buy this telescope, it is really great. I should say that it is not about magnification its about light gathering, the more light gathering the fainter the object you can see so if you have more light gathering you can use more magnification and this telescope has a lot of light gathering.Read More
This is my first telescope and I love it. Assembly was easy. The telescope is easy to use and the eyepieces work great. In the pictures there are two weights, but I only recieved one and it doesn't balance out with only one weight, but maybe I'm just doing it wrong I don't know I'll keep working on it. The finderscope doesn't work very well, but you just have to put on some teflon tape or plumbers tape. Collimation was easy after I bought a Laser Collimator because the telescope did not come with one. Overall I would recommend this telescope for a beginner.Read More

Telescopes Buying Guide
Invented by accident in 1608 by an eyeglass maker in Holland, telescopes have allowed astronomers to explore the far reaches of the universe.

Here is some information to help you understand the basic technologies so you can choose the telescope that will work best for you.
