    Had no issues with the Delivery of the telescope and was happy with the price paid Review by David Scrimgeour (Posted on 6/10/2017)
    Good, very basic telescope, a little lacking in build quality in places
    Overall Score
    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.
