The market has needed something like this for a long time. It's an amazing value for the price! I got it for my five year old aspiring astronomer daughter, and within six or seven minutes on our first viewing session, we experienced the moon in magnificent detail with both lenses, and saw Jupiter with five of it's moons! Amazing clarity for a 76mm scope. Crystal clear optics! Easy, well made controls and mount, and for less than $50! I've been into astronomy for about twenty years, and have never had an experience like this with a small scope for four times the price, and Celestron is a trusted, respected name in optics. It was the perfect scope for my daughter's first, with no fear of insufficient size, poor-quality optics, or difficulty of use discouraging even a five year old from a lifelong journey through the universe! It also has room for expansion with optional filters and lenses, as it uses the standard 1.25" size. A+++!
