        I have never owned a Telescope before so was nervous about getting the right one. This was not only VERY EASY to set up, but VERY POWERFUL for a novice like myself. Was able to see Jupiter & 4 of it's moons on the first night!

          Have yet to get many warm temps or clear skies to put in some solid time but we have used it for a few planets and the moon. My son is amazed at the view. The unit arrived on time and in good condition. The team at B&H was a pleasure to work with.
