5.0 out of 5 stars Love it
By Sanjeev Seukeran on January 10, 2017
For what I spent I got my money's worth. I can see the Orion Nebula, Jupiter and it's four moons and much more. I don't have it yet but I'd recommend you get the AstroMaster Accessory Kit. The telescope itself feels very well built. The tripod is a little iffy at times but it works well. The red-dot StarPointer is not the best and if you try your best to align it it will work alright but it's not the best so don't expect much from it. As a beginner scope or just someone who wants something to have a casual look into the night sky every now and then it will not disappoint !

5.0 out of 5 stars The sky isnt what we think it is.
By Jose Mayor on February 5, 2018
Excellent starter scope for anyone interested in viewing the moon and celestial bodies. Very sturdy and well made for being one of the lower models. I would highly recommend barlow scopes 2x and up for deeper viewing. Hint for clear viewing, try and keep the eye lenses high in the scope so the image could clear out, basically like manual zoom. Get moon filters and play around getting other lenses, doesnt matter brand just 1.25" for the sizes, overall very happy with my purchase, me and my son love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome telescope for hobbyist
By Algernon7 on May 3, 2014
Most folks like reflectors but all of that collimating just turns me off. My AstroMaster is always ready to go in a minute's notice and where I live (southern Louisiana) that's important. Our weather is cloudy for a large portion of the year so when the sky does clear I don't have time to play around with aligning mirrors.

This scope is plenty powerful enough to check out the moon in great detail, Jupiter (you can see the cloud bands) and Saturn (rings are visible). It is also fine for the larger and brighter Messier objects like M31 (Andromeda Galaxy) and M42 (Orion Nebula). I do suggest eventually getting the Celestron lens addon kit for it though as that opens up so many more options and the lenses are just a better quality.

Lastly I will comment on the tripod. I am giving this scope a 5 star rating DESPITE the tripod. It's not that it's flimsy, it's fairly sturdy, but the clutch system makes it really hard to get it set onto a moving object and then to re-position when it moves. Honestly, I usually just mount this scope on top of one of my sturdy video tripods and it works even better. There are threads on the bottom of the scope's dovetail mount that allow you to mount it to a standard tripod and that wins lots of brownie points with me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great first telescope! I love mine!
By Randy on July 13, 2016
I really enjoy this telescope. It was my very first telescope and I picked it up on Amazon one Christmas when it was on sale. I know very little about telescopes, but I have been able to find stars and of course the moon with this telescope and I have even managed to take photos using my iPhone 5 with the telescope. It takes patience, and a little bit of luck in snapping the photo, but I have captured some images that have provided a lot of enjoyment. Here are a few of the moon that I snapped last night, on July 12, 2016.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great telescope, especially for beginners
By Disney Mom on February 8, 2018
This is such a great telescope! It was really easy to set-up (and I am a complete novice at these things). We tested it out first on trees and signs in our neighborhood and the clarity is truly amazing! That night there happened to be a full moon and it was absolutely spectacular! I put my phone to the viewfinder and took a few snapshots. You can see all the details of the craters, so stunning! The telescope is bigger than what I expected, so it does take up a lot of room in the house and you can't really store it once you have the alignments in place, but since it looks really nice it fits in with the décor.
