5.0 out of 5 stars Quality piece of kit, very happy., 18 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I did a fair bit of research on entry level telescopes before parting with my cash. Taking feedback from multiple sources
(online reviews, sky at night magazine, etc etc) this seemed to be the best choice for the money.
Plenty of people recommending, it so I took the plunge, and boy am I glad I did !

When the telescope arrived the first thing that struck me was how well packaged it was. So plus points already.
Out of the package it seems like a sturdy piece of kit for the money, again I was impressed.

Read the instructions, read them again, then again. Finally I set it up, mirror seems to be aligned perfectly, no collimation
required. And the red dot pointer is almost bang on with no adjustment either. Certainly close enough to allow me to find
jupiter and all 4 moons on my first attempt :o). And I could clearly see cloud bands on Jupiter, and that's with the stock
lenses which are quite poor in the scale of things I hear.

So I'm a beginner and I managed to find and see Jupiter and all four moons straight away, that should tell you a bit.
I've since tried the Orion nebula and can see a misty patch, and I've also seen some great detail on the moon.
Next target to tick off the list ... Saturn....

So in conclusion very happy with my purchase, I can't see how you can do better for the money.

Now to order some better eyepieces and kit to connect a DSLR for a bit of astrophotography :)
