Most helpful critical review
on December 22, 2013
This accessory kit is useful and it is a shame they don't package it all together under one price. Instead, you get the scope then discover you need all this too! Guess that is marketing, but I don't like being taken advantage of. Anyway, the kit is helpful. Remember, the first scope is just that -very basic and nothing expensive. Same can be said for this kit.
Eye pieces are clear and focus well. The finder scope is very cheap and extremely hard to align. Actually, it is hard to align and almost impossible to keep aligned. However, it does help when trying to use the telescope if you can get it aimed in the general area first using the finder scope.
I found the CD to be very out of date and of almost no value to me. Certainly not user friendly. After about 30 minutes with it, it just shelved it. Maybe I should have spent more time learning to use it, but I could not see any reason to do so.
Overall, the kit is overpriced for what you get, but it is minimally worth getting - if nothing else, for the eye pieces.
