5.0 out of 5 stars Can't decide on a scope? Just buy it!, 16 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this telescope after weeks of indecision about what kind of scope to buy. Too much indecision. The bottom line of all the research I done was, buy the best scope you can afford. Simple. This fell in my price range - better than a 114mm aperture (around £100) and not as good as a 150mm aperture (more than £300). I wasn't disappointed with this. It's a sturdy piece of kit and comes with comprehensive instructions. You need to get used to the non-intuitive mount, but other than that its pretty simple to set up. The red dot finder works fine and is easy to align. Comes with a 10mm and 25mm eyepiece. I've ordered a cheap 2 x Barlow lens and a moon filter that I've not had a chance to use yet. I would recommend buying "Turn Left at Orion" a book to show what are the interesting things to look at and what they realistically look like through a small scope. Like other people have said, you need to be realistic about what you will see with any telescope - you won't get Hubble type views! First thing I looked at was Jupiter (the brightest thing in the sky - no moon yet!). You can see a surprising amount of detail and four moons. Next thing was M42 nebula on Orion's belt, also stunning.
As I said at the start, you can look and weigh up forever - but you'd better spend your time out looking at the sky!
Quick delivery too!
