- First Telescope
If youre reading this review for pros and cons of the telescope, here they are.
(Baring in mind i live in a relatively suburban area)
-Easily observe the moon and its features with variety of eyepieces included.
-Can see Saturn and its rings
-Can see Jupiter and its moons faintly
-Can see other planets such as mars and venus but not in precise detail
-Can see nebula such as the Great Orion Nebula very easily
-Lightweight, easy to construct and easy to operate
- Well, there isnt any really.
If you are looking to invest in a telescope that will enable you to see distant planets, galaxies etc or are looking for a telescope that will allow you to see deeper space this is inadequate. HOWEVER, as a beginners telescope or a telescope children would like to use i would highly recommend this one. It is sturdy and requires little maintenance and for the price, you cant expect much more.
Yes i would recommend this as a beginners telescope, especially if you are unsure on whether or not you are to continue star gazing in the future as this telescope is relatively cheap!

- Great first serious telescope.... may become addictive.
Overall I'm delighted with the instrument and its supplied optics. It far exceeded my expectations for the sale price. I'm now well and truly hooked on stargazing (thanks Ozscopes) & look forward to future dealings with the said supplier of my new addiction. The sky is not the limit... (Posted on 6/10/2017)
- Good first telescope.
- Good first telescope.
The telescope looks very nice and isn't too hard to use. However, at first I didnt understand other comments about needing a bigger telescope, but the eyepieces didn't allow you to see so far. Still, will definitely buy more from ozscopes again. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
- Just perfect!
- Very happy with this skywatcher scope
I will recommend it to first time user like me. However, it does encourage you to buy a bigger and better scope to get a really crisp images of Nebulae. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
