    This is my first telescope and i liked it very much! The setup was very easy with instructions pictured step by step. The things that I have been able to view were spectacular and the optics are nice. It's just going to take some time getting use to it and to familiarize myself with the scope. The view is upside down for this type of telescope, although it's good for stars, I wish I bought the other type, R80, which is good for both land and Astro objects. The backpack is really good, for my son used it for other occassions, such as sports.

    I am a newbie on telescopes, but I have used a few low cost ones, and this is the best value for the money, very easy to setup, and GPS object locator works great. I looked in some other sites for the same model and it is more expensive, from $340 to $500. Some of the cons are that some parts feel little cheesy, but the optics is pretty decent. So overall I would recommend this telescope for anyone that is interested in seeing the moon, planets, stars and constellations with decent quality. So far I haven't seen any UFO, hehe, just kidding.

    The optics on the scope give great bang for the buck. We've seen some awesome views of the moon, but cloudy skies have limited views of other objects. Not yet seen Saturn because it's apparently still below the horizon until silly o'clock this time of year, but while I'm not looking for something unrealistic from a scope of this size and price, I am hoping the image will be worth the money spent. It takes time and practice to set the scope up. It is VITAL that not just the motor is level, but also the scope be checked to make sure it is absolutely straight up in park position. A spirit level is needed to check the scope and a compass to make sure the arrow on the motor is set to south. I've had a few problems. After going through a complete setup checklist and going step by step following the manual ruling out setup, I discovered the problem was with the tripod. It is a poor quality tripod (even though it is advertised as "upgraded"). The top part where the 3 legs come together rocks as the scope slews. No matter how much tightening of the nuts there is always play and that interferes with the accuracy of the computerized system. I can't understand why such a poor tripod would be bundled with the product.
