I realize there are better telescopes available. But for the beginner (like me), this scope works as advertised.
My son and I had this thing out of the box and were looking at the rings of Saturn in about 45 minutes. Ok, my son had it looking at Saturn in 45 minutes. :-)
I have always enjoyed looking at the night sky. Now I can actually see more than just tiny white dots.
The GoTo feature works reasonably well. It gets you in the general area. This is helpful if you, like me, find it difficult to point to anything but the moon in the sky.
The tripod is not real sturdy. The focus knob and the knob for the built-in Barlow feel inexpensive(cheap), but overall quality is good for an entry level telescope.
I would recommend this scope to anyone that is looking for an introductory telescope that is fairly simple to use and has the GoTo feature that will have you looking at things you only imagined.
