Celestron FirstScope Signature Series Moon by Robert Reeves
I like this scope, sure it not not biggest or the greatest but it's light and portable I can see objects fairly clear. I can carry it to a sight without hurting my back. The focuser is smooth and it focuses great. the field of view is wide. I got a barlow lens and accessory kit for my scope. Great for parents and kids...
Great beginner telescope
Very easy to use. I bought this telescope to specifically look at the moon.
Celestron Firstscope review
I like this scope. The mount is very solid and fairly easy to use and, from what I could see through the 20mm eyepiece, gave a well detailed view. Of course, I have only used it once and I won't use this scope again until I can afford to replace the almost useless eyepieces that come with this scope. Yes, I know that chintzy eyepieces like these are included with beginners' scopes to cut costs and supposedly get one started but a Huygens eyepiece, an over 300 year old design; really? I would think that such eyepieces would serve to discourage not encourage a new scope owner. For goodness sake, at least consider a modified achromat. I believe that this little scope could really shine with a better set of eyepieces.
Not really a review. Acknowledgement of good service from OPT
Gift for Grand Children. Came promptly and appears to work properly as their report to me, 1700 miles away. Reported that a piece was broken off on the lens cap in the sealed box but that did not affect the operation of the telescope. Good service from OPT.
