Good Scope

I bought one of these and with some upgraded eyepieces, an old Velbon VHS Movie Camera tripod and it is the perfect grab and go telescope

Nice scope

Overall the scope works well for the money, the eye pieces are a little cheap but still useful,the only downside truly was the tripod,almost useless.

Great for the kids and for light weight travel

Needing to get out to some dark skies or check out the moon in the city? Some people just want something they can enjoy with ease without all the heavy lifting and space being taken up in the car. This is a perfect scope on the go! Are your children wanting to learn astronomy or perhaps you'd like to find something serene and peaceful to bond over with them? Look no further! I got this for my son who enjoys every moment of using this. Tell em Kurt sent you

Great starter scope

I got this little scope for a friend's 12 year old and it went together easily and worked great. He was thrilled.
