    This telescope is the first one I've ever owned myself. For a beginner's telescope it is perfect. It is simple to set up and use. The only thing I could have thought of to make it better would have been a moon filter, but that's another story. If you are searching for a telescope for a friend perhaps their first. I suggest you consider this one.

    I bought this item for my daughters birthday. She seems to like it and says that it's easy to use. I believe it's a good value for the money. Seems good for first time users.

    I purchased one for our senior attorney's office. Partly as an interesting office accessory and conversation piece, and also for actual use. Little did I know a telescope is not like binoculars! :-) When you look through it say for instance at the street or lake with boats, everything you look at is reverted. It is so odd, but makes sense when you think about it. So we had to order a special lens that flips what you are looking at to the proper dimensions. It looks great but doesn't give you the ability to see far distances. But for a starter telescope I would highly recommend it.

    This is my 3rd telescope. My 2nd reflector. Most astronomy sites suggest starting off with a 70mm telescope and, I understand why. The sale price convinced me to get this 60mm for my 9 year old son. You can't beat it for the price as a STARTER scope. Great quality construction and nice clear optics. But (no fault of it's own) It just isn't powerful enough to resolve planets to a good size. My son complains that the image is tiny. He's right. The eye pieces are really large and comfortable and show a larger amount of space around your target as advertised but this is better for land viewing. It wouldn't be an issue if they included more than 2 eye pieces or a barlow lens. I just don't want someone else buying it with expectations greater than a starter scope.
