It's a $80 telescope.Posted
The good - Images appeared clear, even able to make out the lines in the gasses on Jupiter, and at lower power see three of it's moons. Our moon had impressive detail, and as it was out and very bright last night, I couldn't see details of other stars very well. Waiting untill the end of the cycle and hoping for some clear nights. The Bad - The tripod and mount are very unstable. Sometimes just adjusting focus was enough to knock Jupiter out of the sight window under high magnification. I think some tighter tolerances would have made this much more impressive for the price. Haven't had the chance to play with the Barlow lense yet, hoping for the best. All in all - Again it IS an $80 telescope and you get what you pay for. If you are only going to take it out every now and then or want to get a feel for how much use it will get, it is a good scope. If you are really into star gazing, I would spen a little more money and get a better one.
I would recommend this to a friend
