Bought this based on a recommendation from a friend who has the blue version and I was quite impressed. Was deciding between this and another brand, but when with this one for the price. Clear optics, great visibility and zoom. and was quite easy to use and operate. Makes my black/white office decor look even better. thanks to the nice and shiny black finish. Thumbs up for Rokinon on building a fine telescope.
I bought this telescope as a gift to my nephew in PR. My nephew was super excited to spend time looking at the sky as he lives in a mountain and gets a beautiful view. Everything was set up only to realized that could not get the lens to focused. Chose not to return the product as I had to ship it to Puerto Rico - by the time the product got back to me we probably would have spent the same amount only in shipping. Most likely to get a huge ding on the return from O. :-( Very disappointed.

Bought this for my sister and brother-in-law for christmas. I went on a whim and purchased it because he used a star finder on his cell phone. They were really surprised and excited about the telescope. Having never used one before, they both said it was really easy to assemble, has a small footprint and is easy to use. They have it set up on their back deck and show it off when people are over.
