    I had been looking for a starter telescope for wife and kids. This fit the bill perfectly! It is a great scope - good lenses, good size, has a sporting scope, easy to set up and use. My wife, who is not terrible mechanically inclined, had it set up and ready to go in no time. This is a wonderful scope for beginners, and was on sale for about $70! However,it also seems like it will be good for years to come as well!

    i bought the telescope as a beginner for my grown son who needed something to use as a recreational outlet. he tells me he is finding very easy to use and is learning more about astronomy in general. i was glad best buy offered this product choice and the ease it was to order and pick-up at there location (so as not to be delivered to the house during working hours) .

    This is a simple, easy to use starter scope I purchased for my pre-teen son to do a little star-gazing on camping trips, etc. I'd call it a perfect, inexpensive way to get your children involved in studying the cosmos and adding enjoyment to outdoor activities that are accessible and far more real than the stuff they're filling their heads with via electronic stimulation.

    Nice telescope for the amateur astronomer. Good instructions have you gazing at the stars in no-time. Have gotten some beautiful views of the moon, and have even spotted the rings around Saturn. I highly recommend purchasing some filters to enhance the viewing experience.

    When I first used this scope, it made me feel like a professional. I was in awe. I would like to find accessories in the stores instead of online so I can enhance my experience. I cant wait to upgrade, so I can record what I see. Thank you Celestron and Best Buy for enabling me to achieve a dream.

    700mm telescope that is perfect to teach my grandchildren the stars. With the special pricing that Best Buy had, it beat the competitors by many dollars and equal quality. I could not be happier with the product, and withe qick shipping I received. This was the first time I used Best Buy on-line purchasing, but it wont be the last.

    I bought this telescope for my son's 6 Birthday. He loves it!. It has two interchangeable lenses that will let you use the telescope for land and celestial exploring. This telescope will enable your family to enjoy watching the stars and the moon with minimal set up time but with the power of more expensive telescopes.

    Certainly good for someone starting out on astronomy or for those that just want a closer look at the night sky. I would have liked the tripod to be a little taller but that is more to do with my age and the fact that I have had 2 back surgeries. It was easy to set up and is easy to move and to use.
