Very inexpensive. Great Value! 5 minute assembly (No tools). Light and portable. It comes with 2 eye pieces and 2 barlow lenses. ...And a moon filter! I also set the scope up focused on our bird feeder (40 meters away). Amazing views of the birds! (20mm eyepiece) The bonus is the Astronomy software that includes; Deepsky database, 10,000 images, Logbook, Image gallery, Telescope control, Star Charts, Solar System info., and internet features.... all at $39.00 on sale! Don't compare this to a $300.00 telescope. The best way to observe with this scope is to just use the 20mm eyepiece for EVERYTHING. ...NO CONS! This is a great first telescope for children or even first time amateur astronomers. I also have a 10" Schmitt Cassigrain w/ GPS and a Newtonian Dob..
I came across your product by accident and had to check it out because of it's affordability. I am an amateur astronomer, Science teacher and a nature lover in general. Please feel free to contact me for any reason. Love this little scope.
