    I bought this to make a lens out of it and guess what. It’s done. Here are some pictures I got with it. Love it. Using Panasonic Gx85.

    I’m using this as a guide scope for my SCT. It works fine for that purpose. Probably not as good as a purpose made guidescope, but a good economical alternative. The attached photo was taken while guiding with this scope.

    For the price this is a steal! Got this telescope for my grandfather for his birthday. He is outside a lot on the patio at night and always watches the stars so I figured it was time to give him, what he never knew, he always wanted. A great beginner scope! After focusing the scope properly and taking a glance at the moon it almost feels like you could reach out and grab it. Wonderful!

    For the price i paid i guess i couldn’t expect the greatest star gazing experience. You will see pics of others and think you will see galaxies easily. No. After reading through and doing my research, i discovered that to get those spectacular views a DSLR camera with the respective T-Ring for the camera is ideal. If you have access to one then great.

    1. Light and glass lens
    2. Convenient backpack
    3. Easy to set up
    4. For standard viewing (bird watching or view sky) it gives an adequate view ratio…

    1. For first telescope purchase and for the price it was ok. Hated, how the price fell on Amazon.com and not on .ca 2 days after i made my purchase.
    2. Tripod sucks. I saw others saying that way
    3. From research as mentioned (You won’t get a galaxy or full moon view without a DSLR camera/or some other lens to give that extra boast)

    Great little telescope for checking out the moon, haven’t really tried doing anything else with it though. Bought mine last August and have had lots of fun with it since then. I use my iPhone to take pictures through the lense and have gotten some great shots.

    I don’t know why people are expecting the results of the Hubble Telescope in the reviews. It does exactly what it’s designed to do. It takes the moon and makes it look like a large marble that’s placed a few inches from your eye that’s in pretty good focus. You can see some craters on the Moon, but you can’t see Niel Armstrong’s footprints. You can see the rings of Saturn, but you can’t count them like a tree that’s been cut in half. I’m not sure why some individuals have ridiculous expectations for something that’s less than $100…

    There are better scopes out there, sure, but it’s a great beginner scope for kids and amateurs. I got this for my 7 year old who has shown interest in the Cosmos. If he really gets into it, I’ll invest more later and pass this to his younger siblings. For right now, it’s perfect.

    The frame is light, but the scope is light and doesn’t need a heavy duty frame. It holds the scope, which is what it’s designed to do.

    All the pieces were accounted for, and it came with a backpack so it can be taken on trips so you don’t need to buy a separate case to hold it when you’re traveling in the car or walking somewhere.

    It does what it was designed to do. Great for kids and amateurs at a modest price to see nature, take it to a long distance shooting range, see space a bit better, and anything else that is legal to do. If you want to see a nebula, and have a few thousand dollars to spare, go for it and buy that kind of scope.

    For the normal people with real expectations, this is a great telescope for beginners and kids. Well worth the investment if you’re unsure if you want to invest a large amount of money to see footprints on the Moon.

    Take care!

    I’ve been using this for astronomy for 2 years now, starting as an absolute novice.. It fits inside a small rucksack making it great for taking around. It’s been with me on holiday around the country and has been great at helping my girlfriend get into astronomy. I would recommend this scope for beginners as it’s easy to set up and relatively low cost.

    It is important to limit your expectations with this scope. It won’t show you anything like the pictures NASA takes. It can also be tricky to identify exactly what you’re looking at. The side scope will likely require adjustment every time you set the scope up. I like to use a star tracker app on my phone/tablet to help identify exactly what I’m looking at.

    The tripod is good quality, although the legs aren’t long enough to use while standing. It’s fine for kids or if you sit down. Everything assembles easily using thumbscrews. I did also buy a phone mount to try and take pictures. For astronomy, this scope isn’t powerful enough for decent photos, but I did get some half decent photos of the moon and using it during the day out in nature.

    Possibly the worst item I’ve ever bought on Amazon & I buy some tat.
    Ok for birdwatching, not stargazing.
    Tripod is flimsy, wobbly.
    Magnification not great.
    Movement is stilted & clumsy, makes astronomy impossible. When you find the moon (not good enough for anything else), lock it all tight, then the weight of the scope drops it a few mm, you then lose sight of it.
    Avoid altogether for stars, ok for watching your bird feeder down the garden.
    So really not suited for the advertised purpose.

    I’m only rating 4 stars to echo the complaint about the tripod. It’s really not sturdy if extended at all. Holding a constant angle (altitude or azimuth) is tricky.

    Nonetheless, I’m pleased with this scope so far. I’ve only used it a little bit, but it does do decently well with viewing the moon. This picture were taken with an iPhone 6 held up to the 10mm eyepiece, so hardly a quality setup.

    I primarily bought this scope because I was looking for something cheap and portable. I live in the suburbs of a medium-sized city (~250,000 people) so light pollution takes out most of what I can see. I wanted something I can just put in my car and take with me to somewhere darker without having to plan for tedious transportation and 20 minutes of setup/takedown. This is very small and easy to carry with the included backpack. It sits nicely on the hood or roof of my car when I want to set it up and only requires me to take off a few lens caps and slip in a lens, 5 minutes max.

    Overall, it so far does what I want, and for a price that beats even the junky telescopes at toy stores. The tripod is my only gripe.

    I got this for my dad and based off the high quality of the telescope, he thought I paid a crazy amount for it! It comes in a nice little backpack and there is even a little extra room to put other stuff in there as well. I didn’t take a picture of the whole thing put together but it is wonderful! The quality is so amazing and the price is such a steal for the quality. If you’ve read this far and if this review helped at all, please click “helpful”!
