Excellent value for the beginner
on 7 January 2012
After 6 months' of comparing products and researching, ordered this sensibly-priced Newtonian telescope on a Sunday and it arrived in excellent packaging on the Wednesday - from Germany! It is lightweight, easy to set up, has a good solid tripod and the extras included a moon filter (bonus). Have viewed Jupiter and the Orion nebula most notably. You need a certain amount of patience, a good clear night and remember to start with a low-power eyepiece whilst at novice-twit level (like me!), and accept that there is a lot of complicated stuff to learn. Looking forward to better (warmer) weather to progress further with my new interest. Excellent value for money - this telescope is more than adequate for my requirements.
