It is a definate beginer telescope takes getting used to! Four stars for the customer service refuned me promptly and efficently telescope seemed of good quality but if you want to actually see stuff you need to spend a 1000 or more for a good telescope definatly takes alot of passion and money for this hobby
Though we are only using the stock eyepiece. The moon looks amazing!
Love the portability. The tracking system is great for the price. Very sturdy tripod. Crystal clear optics. Make or buy a dew shield. Eats batteries fast. Get a power tank or power cord.
