    • Not for star watching
      Verified Purchase

      When the kids took this out on a very clear night to look at Venus it was nearly impossible. It may be good for looking at things in your yard but dont for sky watching.

      I bought this for my grandson for his birthday as he wanted a telescope. Maybe he was too young to really appreciate this one (he was only 7 years old). It only came as a tabletop as stated, but I think I now wish I had gotten one with a floor stand instead. All in all however, I think he enjoyed it and the price was very good for a telescope.

        We used to have a beginner telescope, bought at a rummage sale, it lasted for a few years, but eventually broke.
