You do need to set up the finder scope carefully otherwise you spend a lot of time searching the sky for your chosen object and of course a good book is invaluable in finding out what to watch and when. Have since added a moon filter and camera adapter although with limited exposure the moon is about the only object with enough light to photograph easily.
I would recommend this kit to any aspiring stargazer, the tripod is amazingly sturdy and the whole assembled kit is fairly easily moved around with care.
By the evening a photo of the moon had been taken - simply amazing! The image is very large and very bright! And the night sky moves really fast! It's all very exciting!
We also purchased from the same helpful seller a camera adaptor - not used yet, but it is of the same high quality as the telescope and we don't foresee any problems.
The kit contained everything you need to see the night sky in detail. I would have no hesitation in recommending this starter telescope. We bought at a good price, too.
Delivery was fast and the item was well packed and arrived undamaged.
He loves it!! and is now enjoying learning about astronomy.
This seems a good quality telescope for any novice wishing to take up this hobby.
The only complaint he has is there has not been many clear nights to sky watch!
