this telescope is good for it price and it's very cheaply made and it is very light weight i mean very light it feel like a toy it's not high quality at all it's made of plastic and the image is very unstable and shaky but still it work fine for the price and it is very very low end and to be honest just buy something with higher quality than this

Great product. I love it. Comes with everything you need to start right out of the box. Basic knowledge of photographing gives you a great boost and AWESOME pictures. Very simple to use, but not so amateur as u might think. Great

This was purchased as a gift for my nephew. He is a beginner in astronomy and I wanted to get him a telescope that was easy to use and would last him a few years. It was very easy to assemble and the instructions were straight forward. We enjoyed the software included in the package and we were gazing at stars the first night we received it.

The Scope has a very small Objective. So adding magnification won't help. Ideally you should go with a larger objective scope to actually see Planets. It also all depends on if you have no Light Pollution too.

question

What software does this come with?
Asked by: Anonymous
It was a year ago I bought this. I dont remember it coming with any software. Check the manufacturer website. Being a tech geek I would be inclined to view any software that came with it. So Im strongly on the side of it not coming with software when I purchased it.
