Good item

The telescope worked pretty well to be able to look at the moon. I need something stronger to be able to look at stars.

Good Entry Level Telescope

I bought this for my grandson as a gift. It is solidly built except for the tripod. Tripod is nothing special, but it does work. Great for looking at the moon. Excellent backpack that is great for storage and convenient to take with you on a trip. It's worth it as an entry level telescope.

Better than expected!

I gave this a 5 not because it's the best scope of the earth, but because it's a whole lot better than I thought it would be. The paperwork says it's better for viewing terrain (yes, even though it's listed as a telescope) but I think it does a fair job at space viewing as well. Once again, not the best but really good. The 45 degree eyepiece makes it easier. Also, if you are a total amateur like me, it comes with downloads and software for your computer to help you and give you ideas. Perfect little scope.

Easy to use and transport

This is a great telescope for a beginner! I love the backpack and organization of it. Great for short hikes too!
