- A spectacular first telescope for a great price!
Despite what other buyers say, the 4mm eye peice is not a peice of junk- it has taken me closer to the moon, planets and nebulas than I ever thought I would get. The 20mm eyepeice is an excellent eyepeice aswell. Double these eyepieces with the Barlow lens and you can get closer still. Fantastic price for what you get.
Aligning the finderscope is a bit tricky, but once you take the time to align it; it is of great help!
The tripod is not shaky, also like other buyers have mentioned in reviews on other sites. It is very strong and stable, however, if you want to adjust the height of the tripod I STRONGLY suggest you get help; I dropped mine while trying to do it myself, but luckily it didn't get damaged.
If you plan to take it somewhere, you willprobably only have to take the mount off and fold the tripod up, which should'nt be much of a problem. But it is quite large and you must carry it very carefully when moving it around.
Overall, a PERFECT beginners telescope; I was very pleased with the beautiful images, even if you could'nt see colour, and it easy to manouver and work. A+!! :) (Posted on 6/10/2017)
