Very impressive for a beginner

Easy to setup and use with excellent image quality. The moon looks superb with a suitable filter. The stand feels sturdy and robust and the scope is easy to remove from the stand for transportation/storage. Highly recommended for a newbie.

This may look like a daunting telescope if you have not had one before, but with a bit of research and preparation I found this a great scope to set up, get out back, and start viewing.
Once you master aligning the scope, and setting it up, you can comfortably enjoy viewing the starts and planets with ease.
Seeing Jupiter's beige shades, and the floor of the moon's craters make this scope a real treasure.
It is physically quite large obviously, so don't expect your 8 year-old to be able to manage it, and I use an EQ5 tripod which is very heavy, and gives much better viewing.

This telescope is amazing! The optics are superb and the mount is surprisingly good! I love the telescope so much.
I really do recommend this telescope.
