I can see the Moons craters in very good detail.

The best improvement might be a good quality Plossl eyepiece to give sharper views, or a basic Zoom eyepiece like the Celestron Zoom 8-24mm.

As others have said, it does have limited potential. But I was able to see the moons of Jupiter using it, as well as Saturn's rings and it's largest moon Titan. The scope has limited magnification potential -- up to about 75x things are OK, but beyond that things can get mushy. You can, with practice, track down a good number of deep-sky objects (clusters and probably some of the brighter galaxies) with this scope especially if you're away from city lights. The best improvement might be a good quality Plossl eyepiece to give sharper views, or a basic Zoom eyepiece like the Celestron Zoom 8-24mm. Either would better reveal the potential of this small scope.

I was skeptical at first because of price, you get what you pay for here though. It is not flimsy, easy observing an aiming. The red dot scope is easy to calibrate.

I bought this telescope (Celestron FirstScope) to enjoy with my three young children. It is compact enough for a child learning to use a telescope to maneuver and durable enough so you do not have to worry about it breaking or coming out of alignment while getting used. This is an above average little telescope! I also have a 6" reflector telescope that requires both a fair amount of set-up and that the user be delicate (and tall) so this Celestron was a nice solution. The base is very solid and the viewing angle comfortable. The magnification is impressive for a telescope of this size/price, with good resolution of the moon, nearby planets and brighter stars. I would recommend starting with the lower magnification eyepiece for kids; because finding items in the sky with a lower magnification eyepiece (with a wider field of view) will be confidence inspiring. If their interest does not wane, introduce the higher power eyepieces. Overall, this is a great telescope, it is user friendly and portable enough to use at a moments notice. Plus it looks cool and scholarly as an accessory in their bedroom when not in use!

I just got this "first" time telescope and already I have had some fun and interesting enjoyment from it. I was immediately able to see the moon and its craters even though it was not a full moon. I was able to see the entire circumference (including dark area) of the moon too. Since this time of year (July-August) is not optimal to see other planets, I was only able to catch a few star clusters and even a satellite or two. The view and clarity was pretty good for this smaller sized telescope. I'm sure I will get many, many hours of star gazing with this telescope.

There is basically no setup needed other than inserting one of the two included (10mm & 20mm Kellner) eyepieces and attaching the upper sight-scope and aligning its red dot to an object you have chosen (sighted) through the telescope's eyepiece. Once the upper sight-scope is aligned, it is then used as a simple basis to find an object (moon, planet, stars) to be more easily located/viewed through the telescope eyepiece. There are also better (more powerful) eyepieces available to be used with this telescope too. Maybe next year I'll get one and see the difference.

Overall, I am am very pleased with this FirstScope Telescope...Gotta go see a few more stars now!

I'll start by saying as far as the telescope itself goes, it was very easy to use and had virtually no setup needed aside from aligning the red-dot scope. And that was fairly easy to do during the day. At night I was able to easily see star clusters and enjoyed about an hour and a half of star gazing. The moon was hidden so I can't speak to that. I was impressed by the scope for what I paid.

Unfortunately I had to return it. The reason being that when I first opened it up I almost immediately saw flaws in the Cosmos wrap. There was bubbling at each of the screws on the bottom of the scope and a large crease near the eyepiece. To some this might not be a big deal but I pick up on these things and I would never be able to unsee them. I thought perhaps after a day or two they might go away. I was wrong.

Don't get me wrong, the image looks amazing on the wrap but there should not be bubbling and creasing to take away from it. Hopefully mine was just a random occurance.

Luckily, the little bit of time I had with the scope inspired me to not just return for a refund but to upgrade to the Celestron Cosmos 90gt Wifi Telescope. I am currently awaiting it's arrival and am sure it will great.

I love this starter telescope. The instructions are illustrated and easy to understand.
It was easy to set up and dial in the star finder attachment. I am at best an amature astronomer,
So I wanted a beginner telescope to use myself and share with my grandchildren ( all still under 10yrs)
This is the perfect scope for my intentions, it's sturdy and well made. Oh I didn't mention it's portable, so you can set it on the patio table, the rail on the deck or take it camping if you choose.
We are looking forward to the upcoming full supermoon, next weekend. So far we have been able to find and identifiy Mars
and Saturn. I can see the Moons craters in very good detail. We recently received our telescope and have had partly cloudy skies thus far. I'm sure we will have lots of fun gazing at the night sky this Fall.
