Okay for the money but try the 70mm
on 24 January 2012
This isn't a bad little scope and it takes 0.965" eyepieces if you want to buy extras although there is a reasonable range with the item. The 50mm objective is a bit limiting as is the lack of finderscope but it's okay for lunar observation. Planets are a bit more of challenge but on a clear night you can make out Jupiter's 4 largest moons.
If your budget will stretch a bit further then there is a 70mm model which is miles better and not that much more expensive. It has a multi-coated objective lens and finderscope as standard.
