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!
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!
I love the motorized function and always use it to follow the moon or a planet. This has an alignment feature which lets you calibrate the scope with 3 celestial objects. Then you can basically press a button to find Jupiter or Saturn, etc. I live in the city and there is far too much light pollution for me to enjoy that function. However, I imagine if you lived in the country it would be great. This is a VERY light telescope. I have a suspended deck which I cannot use this on because of the vibrations, but it works fine on solid ground. Vibration pads would not help with this model as it is too light. The telescope cap has two pieces. Not sure why, but it's kind of annoying.
