    THE beginning astronomer's telescope

    I decided to take up stargazing about a year ago, but was hesitant in purchasing beginner's equipment. Initially I wanted to take up astrophotography, but with little research discovered that it would require a greater investment. The Cometron was among several "top choice" lists for beginning telescopes due to its light gathering abilities and ease of use. After 4 months with this telescope I can confirm what some have said about it being a solid entry telescope. It allows to view the moon in great detail with the provided lenses. Planetary observation is also possible, but I've had to invest in a higher magnification (4mm) lens to see Saturn and Jupiter in greater detail. The included 20 mm lens allows for pleasant views of the Ptolemy Star cluster, the Pleiades, and other globular and open clusters. It is possible to view Andromeda as a faint glow in the sky and the Orion Nebula is very pleasant to look at and its nebulosity is easily discerned. The included 10mm lens provides the best view for single stars. Trust me when I say that this telescope will turn anyone with even the slightest interest in stargazing into an astronomy enthusiast. That's what it has done for me.

    Very good telescope for viewing the stars. It was easy to assemble. It came with free downloadable software for guidance. As a beginner I found this to be invaluable.

    We love this one. Puts our old one to shame, but I suggest getting the extra sizes of lenses and filters to go with it.
