My son is enjoying it immensely.
still in the box
Since it arrived we have had extremely cold or rain and cloudy skies
Good scope for the $
First off it is a bird Jones scope. Which means there is a lens in the focuser tube. I took the primary mirror out and center marked mirror and installed it back. Then I removed the focuser tube just the tube not the assembly. Then I used the included tool to remove the lens from focuser tube. Making sure which way it came out. After that I installed the focuser tube without the lens back into the assembly. Now I used a laser collimator but 1 could use a collimating cap. I lined up the mirrors. Replaced the lens back into focuser tube. The scope works great! If all that sounds too involved then this 127mm eq might not be right for you. But for the price and capability of this scope you will not find a better bargain! I won't say much about the accessories they work and can be upgraded in time. Clear skies!
This scope is meant to be an entry level equipment. It looks well built with mostly metal construction, however the details will get you. The finder scope does not fit properly on the tube and will move with every minor touch. This means that as soon as it's aligned with the main scope it will go wander off leaving you without a finder. The second issue is collimation. This is actually a Bird-Jones design and not a classic newtonian. Collimation technique is slightly different. But the deal breaker is the mechanics once again. Instead of springs the mirror cell uses rubber grommets so the available travel is only a couple of millimeters at best which is insufficient.
New telescope and shared experience.
Have enjoyed every moment from setting up the telescope to exploring and sharing the experience with my granddaughters. I’ll admit their parents as well as myself have enjoyed it just as much!
A little to new to rate
I just had caterack surgery, and it has been very cloudy. At rhis time I don't want to say any thing about the telescope. The delivery and price were great. Thank You for such great service!
