I bought this for my husband as we have been talking about purchasing a telescope to take with us when we go camping.
It took him a little while the first time he used it to figure out how to get the moon into focus and when he finally did all he could say was "wow, the moon looks incredible!" Not sure how good it will be for looking at any planets, however we do plan on buying a star map and we will see what we can see.

The telescope quality is as I expected for beginning star gazing and my husband loves it. The only weak point is the tripod which is rather flimsy - wobbly, so we will be getting a sturdier tripod. All in all we are happy with this item.

This is nice for a beginner to learn about the sky and the universe. I would recommend to my friends.

We bought this for our 6 year old daughter who wanted a telescope. We knew buying it, that it was not a high end telescope. It arrived on time for her birthday and was easy to put together. We have used it over several nights since. You can see the craters on the moon which has been cool. You can make out further celestial things, but there is no definition in what you view.

This is a good beginner telescope, but if you want to see something like the rings around Saturn, you need a more powerful one.

My grandson is using his Christmas gift every day. It was just what he wanted to get started studying the stars and it wasn't too expensive.

You get what you pay for. It was very low quality. The visibility was just awful. I bought it for my six year old so I guess it will do for now. I just do not recommend it.

Gives a good view but very short and has to be elevated by alternate means. Has good range for viewing.

This is a good starter telescope for a child. It seems to work well for the price. We bought this for our grand daughter for her 7th birthday. She was able to see the craters on the moon and a star. The sun is going down a little late for her to be up and using it much right now. In the fall when the sun goes down early she will be able to use it more.
