Good, very basic telescope, a little lacking in build quality in places - Review by Rob
I bought this for my 6 year old son for his birthday. He is thrilled with it and I am actually quite impressed at the quality of images that can be obtained. If you want to examine craters on the moon then it certainly does that relatively easily. On the first night of use we could see and recognise Jupiter and make out 3 bright dots of moons which was quite impressive.
The focus mechanism is pretty basic and the rubber outer wheel and decorative side pieces of the wheels both fell off on the first night. The finder scope is really basic and just about impossible to align with the main one so a 'point and look' approach is really about all that you can do. This is fine for the moon and bright planets but that's about it. The tripod is not too bad but the mount has slack in it so when you want to fine tune your view it is very difficult - you have to move past the point you want and let the flex in the mechanism bounce you back.
Overall however for the money, this isn't bad at all. It is good enough to impress in terms of what you can see and it certainly impressed my 6YO without us having to worry about him damaging something far more expensive. The scope comes in a good sturdy canvas bag and contained a CD of Windows applications, some mini-posters and some other goodies.

Hey there, I was just wondering how tall this telescope is?!
Fully extended, this telescope is roughly 140cm.
We have a great view of north head in Sydney and we would like to watch the big cruise ships and tankers entering and leaving the harbour. Is there a scope with Wi fi that will allow us to view on our computer screen?
Unfortunately there isn't any telescope with wifi capabilities that we know of.
If you'd like to view images from a scope on your screen, you can get any refracting telescope (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/telescope/refractor-telescope) and get a separate imaging kit such as the Celestron NexImage kit (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/celestron-neximage-solar-system-imaging-kit.html). The camera replaces the eyepiece and connects to a computer via USB so the image can be viewed on a computer screen. However this is the only one we stock that allows you to do that, and as it's meant more for astronomy the magnification is very high and won't be very suitable for terrestrial viewing.
Alternatively you can get a spotting scope (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/telescope/spotting-scope) or refracting telescope and use your own video camera or DSLR with video capabilities by placing the camera near the eyepiece using an adapter and connecting the camera to your computer via USB to project the image through.
Unfortunately those are the few options you have for achieving such a thing. There are other imaging kits out there from other brands as well that will let you do the same thing as the Celestron nexImage kit I mentioned above, but I believe no telescopes currently have any wifi that'll let you view the image on your computer wirelessly.
I am looking for a telescope as a gift. He mainly wants it to look at landscapes and I have been told I need a different sort than those to look at stars. What do i need to buy? Do you have an affordable but good quality product suitable?
If you are after a scope for land viewing, then a spotting scope is a better option. Our full range of spotting scopes are listed on our website here:
Generally, spotting scopes have a fairly standard magnification range of 20-60 magnification. Some are more, some are less. The aperture (lens) size of the telescope is measured in mm. The bigger the scopes aperture, the wider your viewing area and the greater the light collection capability. Aperture options normally range from 50 - 100mm.
From there, the biggest difference in price is to do with the quality of the glass used in the optics. Higher quality glass will produce a much clearer, sharper image.
An excellent mid-range spotting scope is the Celestron Ultima 80 20-60x80 - 45° Angled Spotting Scope with Bak-4 Prisms. You can find it on our website for $535.00 here:
The Barska 20 - 60 x 60 Blackhawk - Angled Eyepiece Spotting Scope is also a good option as it comes with a table top tripod. The quality and viewing area are a few step down from the Ultima 80. You can find it on our website for $399.95 here:
It is important to note, that unlike with telescopes, spotting scopes do not come with a tripod. You will need to look at purchasing one separately. We have a standard Optex tripod on our website for $149.95 here:
We also have an Optex Heavy Duty tripod on our website for $219.95 here:
