This is a nice little 'scope, and the software/instructions supplied with it are really useful. We've not purchased any additional filters or lenses yet, but it's good to know we can do so if we want to.
As we live in South East England there's a lot of light pollution, but occasionally we get a night clear and dark enough to have a good look at the stars. We probably use it mostly to look at the moon, and the clarity and level of detail this scope provides is awesome.
For the price, I don't think you'll find much better. However, while it's nice to get a rucksack and tripod included, the tripod is too flimsy for stargazing. If you're viewing from indoors or on a steady platform you might be okay, but even for use in the garden it's just a bit too wobbly. Fortunately we had a much sturdier camera tripod which we use with it instead.
Patience will only take you so far with the basics as supplied, and I really wouldn't bother trying anything other than the 20mm eyepiece until you've replaced both tripod and finder. The entire package is so light that making these substitutions won't break your back. Oh, and get a moon filter and if necessary a light pollution one too. And do bother with the downloadable Starry Night software. Enter your location and the default display automatically shows you what's visible where you are right now (with tooltip labels). Good for planning and even if your local sky is a complete bust, you'll know where things actually are and can have a virtual ponder.
Oh, and the finder bracket is positioned for right-eyed people. I'm not, so I'm considering DIY options...
It will be too hard for my children to use. To be honest, after I opened the box, spent a couple of hours setting up. Then as soon as I let the children use it the telescope moved out of position of the moon again.
So I’ve packed away and not used again. I would have returned, but I didn’t keep the packaging.
It is a shame as the children were looking forward to this.
I dropped it a star because it has three annoying but not too serious flaws. The tripod is the flimsiest thing I've ever come across, the backpack that comes with it seems to be made for something else and the inverting diagonal section is extremely thin plastic into which fits (until the thread inevitably strips) a metal thumbscrew.
The stripped thread is only an issue if you're carrying the thing around with the eyepieces installed. When mounted on a tripod, the eyepiece will be held in place by gravity so it's not a fatal flaw - it is unnecessary and annoying though.
