    Overall Score
    Put the scope together yesterday and was very impressed with the build quality.
    I did some research and found that this scope has a parabolic mirror for sharper images, and I have to say that my view of Jupiter was stunning at 120x magnification.
    I'm a very happy chappy :D

    Great first telescope
    Overall Score
    Ordered this telescope on a Saturday and it arrived over here in West Aus on the Wednesday so super fast postage, double boxed aswell.

    Well what can i say, its BIG, skies have been a little cloudy since i got it but managed one clear night so slipped the supplied 25mm eye peice in and found Jupiter no problem replaced the eye peice with the supplied 10mm and could easily see the 4 moons of Jupiter and also just make out one of the red cloud belts.

    Once i get some more clear nights i am really going to look forward to scanning the night sky to see what i can find and cant wait for a quarter and full moon.

    Great first telescope for anyone, only niggley thing is trying to find things in the night sky with the finder scope, i would reccomend replacing the one that comes with the scope with either a red dot finder or TELRAD finder.
