I am giving these 3 stars purely due to the Tripod stand that I received. Unable to keep the focus in place and keeps on shaking and moving from the target.
If you intend to buy these telescope, do check for other type of Tripod Stand.

This is a good telescope for beginners. Do not expect to see many planets and galaxies with it though lol. You can see great views of the moon. You can also see Saturn and Jupiter (however both of those will be tiny if in focus).

I purchased the celestron 21063 for my husband as a Christmas gift. It was easy to assemble and on the first clear night we were able to view several constellations and planets. Great for the beginner backyard astronomer.

This is truely an incredible telescope with great optics, all glass no plastic. At 90mm x 1000mm you will have less color distortion than a scope with a larger apeture and shorter length. Ive take this scope to 200x magnification and had crystal clear views of the Moon and Saturn; Jupiter will have to wait a few months for 200x, but is clear at 166x using a 6mm eye piece. Focusing is very smooth and precise. Even the tripod is sturdy with stainless steel legs, but what knocks this scope down a star is the horrible mount. Tracking a planet using any magnification past the 20mm eyepiece - 50x - is a pain in the @$$. This scope is good enough to spend the money on a better mount - which is what I did. If your into deep space observation this would not be your scope; but, if the Moon and planets hold your interest than there is no need to spend a fortune on some gigantic telescope when atmospheric conditions rarely allow for greater than 200x magnification anyway.

I bought this telescope for the telescope and not the mount. I transferred this telescope to an equitorial mount. The equitorial mount also has a motor drive with slow motion controls for the R.A axis. This makes this a very good scope for astronomy, and astrophotography. I am very happy with it.

It was super easy to put together. Right away my two boys and I took it outside to see the moon and the hillside during the day. The moon was much more exciting.
Later that night we looked at the moon again, which they thought we VERY bright compared to during the day. We also saw Jupiter, which was not full, Sirus (I think) which was electric blue and magenta- So Cool!! Mars which was pretty small and then I put it on Saturn and they both looked at me bug-eyed after they saw it with the rings around it. They said "WOW! That is so cool!"
This product was really easy to put together and self explanitory to use. We'll be using it to keep track of what's going on in the night skies, as we have lots more to see. We haven't checked out the CD that came with it yet though.
I purchased this product from telescope.com the customer service rep. was excellent and very informative!

For the price and the size, I don't think this telescope delivers what is expected.
The star pointer is incomprehensible.
The motion of adjusting the telescope's view is not smooth. You must over adjust to get the telescope to return to the view you want.
I was not impressed with the magnification. Viewing the moon, planets or items on land were not as I hoped.

This was a gift for my wife who is extremely pleased with the telescope. It replaces and surpasses another telescope. She has used it to introduce our grandson to astronomy. I was impressed with the price comparing it to shops in our vicinity that were charging quite a bit more.

The plastic pieces attached to the eyepiece and body are extremely cheap and fastened by little screws. It came worn out of the box and won't screw tightly enough.
