What you will see.
Moon: Great views, nice clear detail on the craters. The scope is small enough you don't need a moon filter to keep from going blind, unless you're going to do some extended lunar viewing.
Jupiter: You can definitely see some of the cloud bands and if the skies are not too turbulent the detail will be all the better, the Galilean moons are also really easy to see (Hint: for better views of Jupiter get the moons in focus.)
Saturn: I haven't had this scope during a good period of viewing yet, but what I was able to see were the rings and the moon Titan, the color was not very distinguishable though.
Mars: I'm waiting for March to see what it can do. So far it's just been a reddish/brown dot.
Pleiades: Very nice cluster to check out, you can see quite a few stars in it.Read more ›
I've had it about a week or two now and I already love it. Just setting it up (which took about 10 minutes, maybe) was fun as this is my first scope. I live on the northern end of Las Vegas where there is a lot of light pollution, but I'm still able to see a lot of stars with this thing that the human eye really doesn't see. I was actually shocked when I looked through it on my patio for the first time. I spent about an hour and a half outside last night in 50 degree weather with 10-15 mph gusts and had a ball jumping around between Vega, Spica, Arcturus, North American nebula, Saturn, etc. I already have a set of eye pieces and filters on order to expand my views. Honestly though, this product alone would be enough for someone that only takes it out every once in a while, since it comes with two eye pieces already (10 mm and 20mm).
The Starry Night software that comes with the scope is also phenomenal. I really don't know how to describe it. It's extremely detailed and quite easy to use. I have Windows 7 and it installed in less than 10 minutes.
All in all, great scope for beginners like myself. Even if I bump up to a bigger scope, I will keep this around for my kids one day or for camping trips.
