We had a better view of the moon and stars with our naked eyes.

I didn't expect this product to be super amazing, but I did expect to be able to get a better glance at a star.

Unfortunately, it's difficult to focus precisely, and rather fragile.

Fast, easy ordering, and received promptly, but Not what I was expecting. Defintely a childs toy. Unless we are doing something wrong you can see the craters on the moon better by eyesight than with telescope. Stars can be seen, but it takes a lot of effort. Nontheless, my child likes

I bought the Vega as a "first telescope" for my 5 year old. I thought it would be fun to look at the moon and stars together. It was very difficult to find and focus on the moon with the scope. The view was very shaky and there was no hope of finding stars. We had a better view of the moon and stars with our naked eyes. The 3rd day we had it, the outer lens pushed back into the scope while my 9 year old neice was using it (I'm sure a great deal of credit for the mishap goes to her methods) and was irretrievable. Now, all objects are upside down and using the scope promotes motion sickness. I should have gone for a better built more expensive model that would have lasted longer.

For the price, you can't beat this "spotting" scope as my 4.5 year old calls it. It is lightweight and easy for your young astronomer to move around on their own in exploring outer space. We have shared many nights on our deck looking at the stars and moon and I'm sure we'll enjoy many more with this telescope. Enjoy!

All you can really do with it is look at the moon or things around the yard. I was hoping we could do some star and planet gazing, but it is definitely not strong enough to do that. Disappointed all around with the product. I didn't expect this product to be super amazing, but I did expect to be able to get a better glance at a star.

Not enough power for anything really interesting. You can get the same results from a good pair of binoculars and a lot easier. The tripod isn't very stable and limits how high up you can point the telescope, kind of tough since stars are UP in the sky. ;) It was ok to get the kids interested in looking up at the sky, but I want to get a better one so we can view planets and their moons. Wish I had spent my money on that in the first place.

My 10 -year-old was very excited to get a telescope, but he says he can see things in the sky better with his naked eye than with the scope. Maybe he just hasn't figured out how to adjust it properly, but he's disgusted with it.

I bought this for my 5yr old son and he loved it! The only down fall is that the magnification is not what I expected.....but it still works well.
