- Way too small - waste of money
If you want a pain free introduction to astronomy - buy a dobsonian by saxon or skywatcher - also available here for good prices. If you are strapped for cash, a great choice is the celestron firstscope. This instrument is much less $$$, and will outperform the power seeker in all ways.

- Great Gift for kids and beginners, we are budding astronomers now!
With a little bit of help from dad, the scope was set up quite quickly (Within half an hour, by the kids themselves!). Finding the moon was very easy, and we all marvelled at how clear the moon looks. We are still learning the loops in astronomy but this is definitely a good starting point for us.
Now the kids all want one for their room so that they can show it off to their friends (Kids are aged 5, 8 and 11). We adults may think of getting a better one ourselves
Delivery was quick, delivered to us within 2 days of ordering, Thank you Ozscopes for allowing us to get into astronomy (Posted on 6/10/2017)
- Excellent first telescope, but you get what you pay for
