Other Thoughts:My children were so excited that they can finally see planets and the moon! It was very easy to put together and they are using it weekly! Also, it's very easy to assemble and your first look is only minutes away. I'd definately recommend this telescope for teenagers or anyone getting started in scoping.
Other Thoughts:My husband loves anything about stars and moon, etc. For the first time in our 39 yrs of marriage I was able to order and hide this wonderful present. Refractor telescope was nicer then I expected and the cost very reasonable.
Other Thoughts:I would definitely recommend this astronomy telescope to someone wanting to dabble in amateur astronomy, without having to spend a lot of money. But this telescope probably isn't the best for a child, because of the complexity of the mount. The reflector will also require more maintenance (cleaning and collimation.)
Other Thoughts:My thirteen year old got the telescope as a gift and has been outside every night since. I would definitely recommend this one to someone else. Very clear and seems to be easy for my son to use. I have not helped him line it up yet.
Other Thoughts:I purchased this for my daughter for her birthday. She loves it -- and so does the whole family. The views of the moon have been absolutely spectacular -- it is the first time I have seen individual craters with my own eyes. We've also gotten glimpses of Jupiter and Saturn -- glimpses only because of high winds and some thin high level clouds. If you're a novice stargazer, I highly recommend this astronomical telescope..
