5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the Novice Stargazer, September 24, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celestron 21024 FirstScope Telescope (Electronics)
As simplistic as aim the scope and view the skies. This telescope is an premium value for the beginning astronomer especially considering the price, but more so because of the painless operation due to it's almost child-like design. It is exceptionally maneuverable and surpassingly portable making constellations easy to find, anywhere. The names of many significant astronomers and scientist are cleverly wrapped around the optical tube reminding the viewer of the 400 years of history behind this scopes design. While surveying the skies, one can analyze every crevice of the moon and even the larger of Jupiter's satellites. When not in use, this telescope works great as a decorative piece to add atmosphere to any desk or bookshelf. Overall- a great buy.

I don't however, recommend purchasing the accessory kit that compliments this scope for the sole reason that it is unnecessary. The lenses do make a nice edition to those that come with the FirstScope, but neither are more powerful than the initial 4mm; the finder scope included proves a pain in the neck to use, literally. If one is compelled to buy the accessory kit it would be for the wide range of magnification options as well as the moon filter, but once again, these are unnecessary. The money could rather go toward a Barlow lens, which can double the use of each eye-piece.
