A Darn Good Telescope!

Poor owner manual

The manufacturer’s owner manual leaves one with more questions on how to use the telescope. It is marketed and sold as a good beginners telescope. Need to do a better job of explaining how to use it, which will lead to a good experience. I’m figuring it out thru trial & error, but a little disappointed.
