Great telescope, instructions could be clearer
on 8 August 2013
Delivery: very fast, arrived within three days, tracked from Germany.
Packaging: extremely well packaged, all parts present. Obviously you have to put it together.
Build: fairly easy (especially if you have ever made up flat pack furniture!). It does take a little time to sort out which bolts go where, the instructions could be clearer here, but it all goes together well and appears to be very well made.
Usage: this is an area where the instructions are very vague, some detailed information about how to track objects and the maths behind lens powers, but a bit lacking in detail about the various lens options provided. Trial and error work well though. The on line instructions are worth downloading as the drawing needed for building it up is a lot clearer (ignore the obvious typos and mangled English).
Summary: appears to be a very well made product, super fast delivery and now looking forward to discovering exactly how good it is (weather permitting). Just a shame that the instructions are not up to the standard of the telescope.
