    I bought this scope for my son for Christmas and he loves it. The views are amazing and the overall quality of this scope is excellent. The directions were simple to follow and it didn't take us much time at all assembling it. Excellent value and choice. I would definitely recommend this telescope to anyone looking to purchase one.

    I was really excited when I saw this BUT it's pricier than other sites especially the manufacturer. Would recommend shop around - and no, Overstock will not price match.
