We wanted a powerful, portable (as practical) and relatively light telescope. This fitted our criteria and the price was excellent. Looking forward to using it. Hopefully I will be able to rate it as 5 stars. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
- Very nice telescope...
But you will need to buy more eye-pieces in order to see more. It's limited in the way of only having a 25mm eye-piece supplied. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
