Bought this to fulfill a lifelong dream of seeing the planets since I was small. Easy to manage, the accessory tray is very useful for holding the tube cap and eyepiece cases. In the first week I've seen Jupiter with four of its moons and Saturn with two of its moons, as well as the binary star Spica in Virgo. Great detail of the Moon too. I would recommend the Celestron 2x Barlow lens Celestron 93326 1.25 inch Omni 2x Barlow Lens
, which doubles the magnification. It helped me see the cloud bands on Saturn and Jupiter, and gives better moon detail too.It's worth buying but is currently (26/1/13) priced at £42.00, it was £29 when I bought it. In a nutshell - don't waste time/money on smaller, inferior, telescopes it's worth spending a little extra if you can, it paid off for me as I'm very pleased so far.
