My son loves to study about all stars after we read an universe book to him, so it's time to get a telescope for him seeing the moon.

The advantages for this Emerson Refractor Telescope are

1. Good price.
2. It's refractor style (Easier for kid to use)
3. It comes with tripod.

However, we returned it after we tried it on first day due to below reasons (Disadvantages)

1. Bad quality lens (You can find dusts inside lens, not able to remove)
2. Poor quality telescope (Plastic one isn't stable and hard to set up for seeing the item that you plan to see)

If it's a toy for kid, it's ok. If you really want to let you kids seeing somthing, it won't be the one for you.

Any review above one star is by someone that did not try to use the telescope. The mirror is so bad, if you take it out and look at it, it looks like someone rubbed sandpaper on it. The views of the moon were terrible, completely because Emerson used the cheapest piece of mirror they could find, seriously this has to be the lowest priced component of the whole assembly, but the most important, why would someone make such a decision, they should surely be demoted. I will try to fix it with a better quality mirror, but even then I have my doubts. The product manager at Emerson should be ashamed of themselves to putting out a product that has no way of creating a positive experience for a child.

Summery: This is a low end telescope to the extreme, not total junk, but just barely usable.

Optics: The objective has a Focal Length of 600mm. I measured the clear aperture at 43mm, yielding f/14 which is reasonable for a refractor. Sadly it appears to be only a simple lens with no color correction. Two eyepieces come with the scope, yielding 50X and 100X as the packaging displays. The lenses in the eyepieces are plastic, but function fairly well considering. Most quality telescopes today have an 1.25 inch eyepiece holder. This one has the smaller and less common .96 inch holder. The barrel on the eyepieces are actually a slightly smaller .94 inch. The eyepiece focal lengths (12mm & 6mm) are molded into the top and would be impossible to read in the dark. The rack and pinion focuser is stiff but serviceable.

Mount: The scope attaches to the mount with a standard 1/4 - 20 screw. The legs are fairly stable even when extended full length. The Altitude/Azimuth head moves up and down, and side to side. It is basically a low end camera head with a handle to tighten the Alt and point the telescope. Do not tighten this handle too much. There is no lock or tension control for the Azimuth.

Accessories: The finder scope is a little 7x14 thing. Not much different than just a simple sighting tube. It is attached to the main scope with a simple stamped metal bracket that is not adjustable. The diagonal is perhaps the best quality of all. It is in a plastic housing, but the mirror is clear and bright. (Pretty hard to mass this piece up.)

Use: You MUST have the diagonal in place to be able to focus on anything. Several reviewers have stated that this telescope will not focus. This is only true if you are trying to use it straight through.

This telescope is pretty flimsy but my 5 year old wanted one (not really sure why). I still think it's a good buy for the money for the young child. I wouldn't buy this for an older child or adult who is serious about viewing the sky.

I bought it at a local retailer 2 days ago for $25 dollars; I am taking it back today. Image is fuzzy, dim and barely visible; I get a better image using my "perma focus" binoculars made by Busnell. Even if you want to buy it for a kid, don't. They will never use a Telescope again. You do not want their first experience to be so bad. It is cheaper to take them to a local observatory; you will find a lot of hobbyist with their own instruments. They will be more than happy to demonstrate for free.

Another reason you do not want to buy it for a child is the build quality. Cheap plastic poorly put together, the stand is a bit better since it is made out of Aluminum, but it is very thin. The whole unit is very flimsy, more like a toy you buy at the Dollar store, I don't think it will last long with a child

I don't know why would anyone buy something like this,at anyprice. It works poorly as a telescope, and is not even a good toy. I feel bad for the workers who wasted their time making this junk

I purchased this for my 11 year-old neice (from a local retailer). Either the focal length was miscalculated, or the lense was improperly ground. In any case the telelscope cannot be made to focus on anything, making it totally useless junk. Even if I had one that could focus, the stand and mount are so flimsy that it would make astronomical observation nearly impossible. Would not recommend this product to my worst enemy. BTW - I've learned that the company that is behind this junk is MerchSource LLC that licensed the rights from Emerson Radio and outsourced manauacture to China. It has proven impossible and highly aggrivating to pursure any recourse. It's going in the garbage tonight.
