      Bought this scope a while back, but due to the evening smokey atmosphere, I have been unable to align the scope to fully use it's features. The smoke has dimmed the star field substantially enough to make it difficult to see what is up there. The evening sky is starting to clear up so I can at least aim the scope on a particular planet, and hope to soon do the alignment to fully access the features. I'm going to enjoy this scope very much. Smoke has cleared and this scope is very enjoyable to use. My neighbors have really liked viewing the moon and Saturn. Great details of the moon and the rings of Saturn are fantastic.

      This is a large telescope, takes a bit of setup. Works pretty well, a great beginner addition. Still waiting to take it out to the wilderness for complete darkness, and properly watch the sky.

      • A:

        Hello rueb1108, we do apologize, we cannot guarantee the box will not feature Overstock logos. Thank you for shopping with us.

    • Q:

      "how much of the solar system can u see in great detail"

      • A:

        Hello glen, the telescopes database allows telescope to locate over 4,000 celestial objects. Its Resolution (Rayleigh) is 1.37 arc seconds; Resolution (Dawes) is 1.14 arc seconds. This scope can provide very clear views of star clusters, Jupiter with its tiny star-like moons in the background, Saturn with it's ring, Venus with its phases, Oriens Nebula, etc. The 4 inch lens provides surprisingly crisp views, and has a considerable amount of additional light gathering power over smaller scopes. I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Thank you for shopping with us!

      • A:

        The eyepieces are included.
