Product Description

A fun telescope indeed! You'll enjoy hours of stellar exploration with this amazing little tabletop reflector telescope. Designed specifically with first-time telescope buyers in mind, the FunScope is a great way to "test the waters" of stargazing - affordably! But what can you see with it? The FunScope is no toy, it's a real reflecting telescope with a 76mm (3 inch) diameter polished spherical mirror which allows you to capture 60% more light than a typical 60mm beginner's telescope. More light gathered means the FunScope will provide views of the cosmos that are brighter and clearer than views in smaller diameter telescopes. With the FunScope reflector telescope, the whole family can observe the Moon, Saturn's rings, as well as Jupiter and its four brightest moons, all under light-polluted skies. Under dark skies, even star clusters, emission nebulas and some of the brighter galaxies are not beyond reach. The FunScope reflector telescope comes equipped with a red dot reflex sight, smooth adjusting rack-and-pinion focuser, and two quality 1.25 inch telescope eyepieces: 20mm (which provides 15x power magnification) and 10mm (for higher power views with 30x power magnification). You can easily locate and observe objects in the night sky with the accessories included, so you're ready for stargazing action right out of the box! The FunScope's tabletop mount arrives pre-assembled in the box and provides a sturdy and compact foundation for the telescope with smooth motion in altitude (up and down) and azimuth (left and right) axes. If there isn't a table located where you want to use the pint-sized reflector telescope, the entire FunScope and mount itself can be mounted onto a tripod with a 3/8 inch or 1/4 inch-20 screw thanks to a built-in 3/8 inch tripod adapter and included 1/4 inch-20 threaded bushing. Tripods are sold separately.

When I ordered this scope I was worried I had gone to small and to cheap. I was worried again when I saw on the box made in China. Yet when I got the telescope out and was able to take a quick tour of the night sky I was amazed. It moves so smoothly and works great to just sit it on a table and pull up a chair. It does not magnify things to WOW with the stock eye pieces, but it is a blast just to cruise through the sky and see things in a whole new light. This little scope is incredibly well made and you will not be disappointed in the scope's quality.

I chose this telescope over the Firstscope Celestron 21024 FirstScope Telescope because it came with a sight. The Firstscope only has a regular sight and it is in a separate accessory kit. The red dot sighting system really makes it easy to locate objects. This is a pretty good little starter telescope. We mounted ours on a standard camera tripod. It's very easy to transport compared to a refractor scope.

I picked this up on a whim with a gift certificate I received on my birthday. What a wonderful surprize! It gives me wonderfully clear and bright views of the moon even from our light polluted skies here in Southern California. It is small and portable making it a great fit for our RV, and I cannot wait for our next desert trip to get this out in some dark skies. A great value, well made and sturdy.

As your most amateur star gazer, I struggled choosing a telescope for my seven year old son. Being a very logic mature thinker at seven years old, I know he needed a "real" telescope. After doing several days of research, primarily with lens, magnification etc. I decided on the FunScope. Since it's made by Orion I knew it would be a great quality product and it's a great price to boot. I chose right. My son LOVES it. Arizona is a great place to star gaze but our first night using it was a cloudy night. Even so, the scope did it's job letting ample light in so much that the moon was as bright as a headlight, though clouds were right in front of it. The red dot is great too. It allows my son to be independent in finding what he wants to see. What else can I say but I'm VERY satisfied.

I ordered this with the idea of learning how to use it, then giving it to my granddaughter. Well, that's not going to happen. Out of the box, the red dot target finder was dead. I called Orion, who gave me the runaround. This piece of equipment is not absolutely essential, so the next clear night I tried the scope. I was unable to focus it clearly. I went back to read the instructions on collimating the scope, but it looked like that was it adjustment. I tried different lenses, with no improvement in focus.
This wasn't very expensive, but for about the same price, you can get a usable pair of binoculars that work better, are more versatile, and are very sturdy. That's what I did, then.

This scope is really great. I did not give it 5 Stars just cuz its not as stable. But other than that it truly a great beginner scope. It is good for all ages. I bought this for my kids (11 and 6 ) and they love it... I have take picture of the moon with it too... was able to see Saturn and its rings... but you will need to get the Celestron accessory kit to enhance the viewing experience other that than your good to go..

I like this... I haven't seen much but stars yet, don't know how to find planets. I'm a complete novice at this stuff and got this to use with my kids. So far, for the price, can't complain. I think a 2x barlow lens would go nice with it... and I hope to get one next.

I was able to get some good views of stars, and then also saw a blurry fuzzy (larger) ball looking thing, which I'm guessing was a star cluster or a galaxy or something.

I'm happy with it. I already feel like I got my $$ worth, and I've only had it a couple of days.

Possible Con ... the red dot finder seems a little unstable when mounted, but as long as you don't carry the telescope around by it I suppose it will stay in place enough.
