          This is the first telescope I´ve ever bought and it is just great! Quite easy to deploy and use. I can perfectly see the craters and the "channels" on the moon with astonishing detail. I can also have a perfectly clear view of Jupiter and her moons. The motorized mount is extremly helpful, so you don´t have to constantly correct your position every minute. I´ve also used it to take pictures of the moon and other planets with a camera attachment, but this is a bit more complicated as it requires a lot of practice.

            I purchased this for my 13 year olds birthday and found it to be challanging to setup and use. This is a new experiance for me and somewhat confusing. Not really as simple as the instructions say.

            It arrived damaged because it is mainly constructed out of plastic. The mirror was good so I expoxied the viewfinder back on to avoid the hassle of a return. Works great now.

            I gave it 4 stars due to the poor shipping container. It works as the describtion states. My child really likes it.

                I use the scope for viewing moon, planets and stars.

                It is basic but good for a learner.

                Care must be taken to align well or you'll be a bit out on tours and automatically finding planets and stars.

                The remote features are good and fairly easy to master.

                The telescope is designed around mainly automatic control through the remote as opposed to manual use.

                It is good for seeing planets and I saw Jupiter and four of it's moons on my first night. Great for looking at the moon.

                I think it was pretty good value for money.

                I would however like a better spotting scope as this is the weakest link in my view.
