        Telescope itself is built pretty well. Tripod and Mount are very simple but this is a fantastic first telescope otherwise.

            Bought this for the transit of Venus. It arrived just in time, was easy to set up and worked perfectly. Took it to 3rd grade classes and dazzled the kids, then out to a nearby park for the remainder of the evening. No complaints - solar filter was perfect.
