    Way too small - waste of money
    Overall Score
    This telescope, while of decent optical quality, is frankly a waster of money. 60mm aperture is far too small to see anything interesting, and for 150 dollars, is a ripoff.

    If you want a pain free introduction to astronomy - buy a dobsonian by saxon or skywatcher - also available here for good prices. If you are strapped for cash, a great choice is the celestron firstscope. This instrument is much less $$$, and will outperform the power seeker in all ways.

    Great Gift for kids and beginners, we are budding astronomers now!
    Overall Score
    I got this for my kids, and they loved it!

    With a little bit of help from dad, the scope was set up quite quickly (Within half an hour, by the kids themselves!). Finding the moon was very easy, and we all marvelled at how clear the moon looks. We are still learning the loops in astronomy but this is definitely a good starting point for us.

    Now the kids all want one for their room so that they can show it off to their friends (Kids are aged 5, 8 and 11). We adults may think of getting a better one ourselves

    Delivery was quick, delivered to us within 2 days of ordering, Thank you Ozscopes for allowing us to get into astronomy

    Excellent first telescope, but you get what you pay for
    Overall Score
    It doesn't get much simpler to use than this. Putting it together takes only a few minutes, and you can view terrestrial and celestial objects easily. The Barlow lens is very difficult to use as focusing it can be a real pain (very motion sensitive), but the 20mm and 4mm lenses are easy and straight-forward to use. You can get good, crisp images of the Moon on even poor visibility nights, while planetary viewing needs clear skies and a fair bit more patience. The finder scope can be a real pain to zero-in, too. But given the price, this is an excellent entry-level telescope, with no need for any special knowledge , experience or skill to start using very quickly.
