- great scope, love it
when it arrived, i was really exited, i set it up and tested all the little knobs, and how it works, everything worked perfectly. night then came and i carried it outside, pretty easy, went on to find the orion nebula, hard. i then realised the finder scope was there, so i adjusted it and found stuff with ease. it was only a week ago that my world opened up (budam, tsh) and i found 2 clusters. i then had to wake up at 4 in the morning to see venus and jupiter, and wow, my god, it was really something, i could see the moons and the stripes of Jupiter. i want to go to country to see stuff better (hopefully you understand that technical language) all in all, if your thinking of getting it, get it. i… love… it… … … ...
