The highly affordable Sky-Watcher MERCURY-607 allows the younger user to take their first steps into the fascinating world of astronomy. Although similar to many other beginner's refractor telescopes on the market, the Mercury-607 is supplied with superior 1.25" eyepieces and accessories (not 0.96" or hybrid 1.25") and moreover, the eyepieces have been specially selected to give a much more useful and practical range of magnifications (which are not unrealistically too high!) to enhance your viewing experience. The telescope can be freely moved in both horizontal and vertical axes and is equipped with a micro-adjustment elevation control. Suitable to view the Moon, stars and bright planets as well as for daytime terrestrial observations. Magnifications (with optics supplied): x35, x70, x140 Objective Lens Diameter: 60mm Telescope Focal Length: 700mm (f/11.66) Eyepieces Supplied (1.25"): 10mm & 20mm x1.5 Erecting Eyepiece x2 Barlow Lens 1.25" 5x24 Finderscope 1.25"/31.7mm Star Diagonal Fully Coated Optics Alt-Azimuth Mount Aluminium Tripod with Accessory Tray Tube material: Aluminium

So all in all, excellent scope if you have a passing interest or are looking to get into astronomy.
Though skies have not yet been clear often enough to really give the telescope a workout, my wife's been pretty happy with it the little she's been able to use it. Complaints here have been made regarding the tripod, but we have thus far had no issues with it. If you're looking for a good telescope on a sensible budget, this is a good way to go.
I am very please with this product, however, the tripod can become loose. When I find objects in the sky, I tighten the telescope to stay, but it drops slightly, meaning the object moves out of sight which can get slightly frustrating.
All in all, I would recommend this telescope to any beginner, and to someone who isn't expecting to find great colourful gas clouds and nebulae, but stars and planets!
We are complete novices and this was actually a present for my 5 year old daughter. She can't manage it herself, but with me and her dad setting it up and looking at the moon, we did get some nice results.
It does take a bit of time and I tried to get it looking at Jupiter with some OK results. I managed to get a view of the planet and made out some of the details, but it was difficult to focus and retain the focus / tracking of the planet.
Overall I would say this is a great introduction telescope for the budding astronomer, although I think if we were to chose again I might look at a scope with a wider view as this narrow refractor is a bit fiddly to get right.
The different lenses offer a wide voice of magnification, however the 1.5x and 2x lenses that you add to the viewing lenses are fairly redundant for planet / space viewing, that I can figure out so far, but may be more use for using the scope for wildlife viewing etc... Not sure as we haven't tried this yet. Or maybe looking at more distant galaxies... We need more practice!
But overall conclusion is that it's a good product. My daughter was pleased with it and hopefully it will keep her interest alive.

Had already bought this for my younger son 2 years ago, and as my eldest son has now moved to New Zealand thought he may like one too. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Pat H.
I find it difficult to get it focused - every slight movement changes the view. It is the first telescope I have ever tried to use so maybe it's just me - need more practice !!Published 6 months ago by Frenchy
Packaging was absolutely awful and damaged when arrived and looking back at previous comments this seems to be common. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Maria Castleton
