Product Description

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

Bought this as a starter scope (I am a complete amateur when it comes to astronomy), was easy enough to set up, certainly not particularly complicated. Using the basic lenses you can very clearly see the planets. Realising that you are looking at Saturn (look for the gap between the planet and the rings) is a spine-chilling moment, and will have you gazing for a good while afterwards. To be honest I am not 100% sure on the proper use of all the additional lenses, but you get a fair few included (as well as a 'moon-filter'). There isn't that much in the way of instruction in the package, but even using the most basic lens combinations reveals brilliant results.

So all in all, excellent scope if you have a passing interest or are looking to get into astronomy.

My wife was bought this for Christmas by my mother, on my recommendation. I had looked around on Amazon and this was the highest rated within our budget. The seller got it to us in plenty of time, and it was perfectly packaged for such a large item (original packaging safely nestled within a shipping box only slightly larger than the original).
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.

Very very impressed with this product, after reading previous reviews I was certain on getting this telescope and I haven't been disappointed! I ordered this at 7 in the morning and I was dispatched at 9 in the morning and arrived in the morning the next day with standard delivery!! This was brilliant service and extremely fast delivery. The product itself was easy to build, most of it is done anyway, great selection of lenses and a great size with adjustable tripod to change to your own height. You can see as far as Saturn with this product and on a clear night the views are breath taking! All at a bargain price of £56. I cannot complain at all. Buy this telescope you won't be disappointed, I am very very impressed! Enjoy! :)

I have only recently discovered an interest for astronomy. I began learning about when and where to find the planets, the stars and constellations in the night sky. So I decided to buy a beginners telescope, nothing too fancy, and this one really did the trick. It comes with a 10mm and 20mm lens, 1.5x erecting eyepiece and 2x or 3x Barlow lens. It also comes with a moon filter (which I brought separately because the description doesn't tell you what is included, so I sent it back when I received it!)and a dew cap. So far I have looked at the moon (please don't forget to use the moon filter, the moon is blinding!) which is very clear and you can see the craters and I have looked at Jupiter. Even though Jupiter is small through the telescope, providing it is a clear night, you can easily spot the gas rings and all 4 moons.

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!

Used it for the first time last night to see the moon when it has been classed as the supermoon at the moment and can't believe how clear it was through the telescope. Absolutely buzzing about it. the crators, hills etc were so clear couldn't stop looking at it. Can't wait for more clear nights to see the planets. Easy to set up with very good instructions and the extra lens are a bonus. highly recommend

This was a gift for my boyfriend, we are both very interested in the night sky so were looking to buy a telescope, nothing expensive to start but we did want it good enough to at least see some exciting sights. This was perfect, he is extremely fussy so buying gifts for him is always tricky, but this was a complete winner!! Super price, brilliant scope, have seen some brilliant views. Highly recommended

Looks impressive and set up was fairly easy.
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.
