This telescope is fantastic value for money. I purchased the Startravel 150 as an upgrade to my old 90mm refractor. It is amazingly portable considering that it's a 6 inch refractor. First light yielded an amazing view of Jupiter with heavy banding and definite colour between the main belts. Also the Great Red Spot was resolved quite nicely. The Orion nebula was a beatuiful sight. And star clusters were just to drool for. I took the telescope along to my society's (The Baker Street Irregular Astronomers) support starparty for the Stargazing Live event on television. And I was very chuffed with the interest that the telescope received over 100 people observed through the Startravel. And I felt that I definitely helped to bring some new people into the fabulous world of amatuer astronomy. This telescope is very well made and the objective lens is figured beautifully. The views I have been rewarded with are wonderful and rich with a very nice field of view. I give this telescope 5 stars and more.
