It is not very good for a beginner2 Posted by: from: Sherman Oaks, CA on Your booklet says that I should be able to see Venus, Mars, and Jupiter, well I have tried but all I'm abe to see is some Brit stars. The stand for the scope is very flimsy and the handle to adjust the vertical and horizontal are very hard to adjust, every time I try to ajust it, it takes it out of line of what I was looking at.

Superb package for the money.5 Posted by: from: Portland, OR on I ordered this item online as a Christmas gift and was extremely excited once I actually saw it in person. It made a very affordable gift, with the perception of costing much more than it did!! The telescope and accessories are excellent quality and the fitted backpack carrier just put the cherry on top! Great value!
