    A GREAT TELESCOPE

    FINALLY PULLED IT OUT OF THE BOX AND ASSEMBLED THE TELESCOPE AND STAND. WISH THE WEATHER WAS MUCH WARMER AS NOW I HAVE TO WAIT FOR SPRING. JUST TOO COLD TO BE OUTSIDE AT NIGHT AND IT IS GENERALLY CLOUDY DUE TO WINTER.

    Great scope

    This is a really great scope. It's great for deep sky objects, and shows quite a bit of detail on the planets for an affordable price, even in my light-polluted area. Get it, it's worth the money.

    Awesome Telescope

    I got this telescope for christmas. It was assembled in about 30 minutes and was ready to go. I has a 4.5 reflector before this scope and it is quite an experience moving up to such a large aperature. My first target was Jupiter. In my other scope the light pollution surrounding my house did not allow for very high magnification viewing. With the 10 inch aperature of this telescope I was easily able to see the bands of Jupiter at 150x mag without any kind of light pollution filter. I have a new set of lenses, a light filter and a barlow on the way. I can't wait to see what kind of viewing they will give me. Overall, I am VERY happy with the telescope and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Great price for what you get.
