    A good terrestrial scope - Review by
    Overall Score

    This scope is brilliant for terrestrial views, but for aspiring amateur astronomers with their sights set firmly on the heavens I suggest investing in a more expensive scope. Specifically the tripod controls on this scope are very lackluster making it exceptionally difficult to stay focused on any object smaller than the moon. Brilliant for long-distance ground based photography though!

    Enjoy :)
