good images

The images are very clear, especially when you see Moon. You can see 3 moons of Jupiter and 4 separate lines color on the surface of Jupiter. For Saturn, you can see its ring. Mars is red and has some black regions. Uranus and Neptune are very tiny (light blue or bright light). I watched those planets in Monterey Park. if you want a better result, the desert is a good place to catch stars and planets and deep sky objects

Telescope review

Overall, I'm happy. But there are some issues, that are a bit frustrating. 1. Can't seem to figure out how to balance it over all. Have tried to understand the manual, gone to YouTube videos, and to me, I may have gotten it balanced, but it doesn't seem to be balanced properly.
