Purchased this for my fiancé. He enjoys looking at the stars and particularly full moons and this gives him better clarity and more intimate views of the craters. This is a reasonable telescope for new gazers and gives more than what you expect for the price. I would recommend this to any beginner.
This telescope is really great. It's my first one and I am happy with it.
I actually had this item on layaway for a month and i could not wait to bring it home. Easy set up I was able to view the craters of the moon easily. Soon as you break in this scope, you are going to look for one at 500x and 1000x zoom just to take in more of the wonders of our very own solar system. It just reminds you of have vast the cosmos are. I actually purchased a book today by Carl Sagan to learn even more. Happy star gazing folks!
This item is awesome great view of stars. Some of the images you can get of the Moon are spectacular and can see the Moons detail.
