Great beginning telescope
on July 28, 2001
This is really great scope.First,don't expect images like Hubble. This is a small scope,but you'll love it for sure.The best for observations are planets.VERY USEFUL is 2x Barlow lens option.Here's what can you see: Mercury-Very hard,but you can see it's phases.No details.Venus- You can see it's phases at any time.It's beautifull.No details. Mars-It's pretty cool.You can see red disk with some details.Best looking in opposition.Jupiter-Gas giant is very,very beautifull.You can easily see four Galilean moons.You can see up to four cloud bands(maybe something more when in opposition)on large disk.No great red spot.Saturn-The best one!!Rings are so pretty!!You can easily see it.When in opposition you can see Cassini division.Also one cloud band is visibleThe bightest moon Titan is also visible.If you are in good dark sky conditions you can see second moon Rhea end even Dione(when your eyes get adjusted).Uranus-You can maybe recognize a very small disk.Nothing more.No chanse for details.Neptune-Nothing.Just a starlike dot.Pluton-No cnanse!Totally invisible! Double Stars are also beautifull. That's it If you are a beginer try it i think you'll be pleased!
