    Great first telescope
    Posted 7/17/2013 by Maria Wright

    We received this telescope last week, and even though we have only had 2 clear nights, we have played around with it quite a bit. It's so exciting when your kids see the surface of the moon through the lens for the first time! My only complaint is that the tripod is short, so it is difficult for an adult to look through and align the finding scope. The tripod isn't extremely sturdy, so it's hard to get the image in the scope with the way it wiggles around. But once you do, it's fine as long as you don't touch it. It may be this way with all telescopes, but that is my main complaint.

    Telescope
    Posted 12/27/2012

    Very nice telescope. My grandson got my husband to put it together. He was excited to use it, but it was a sunny day and not much to see. He used it that night.
