    4.0 out of 5 stars Understand BEFORE you buy
    By Craig Wheeler on August 27, 2022
    Will you be discovering new planets or counting rings on Saturn with this telescope? No. But will it elicit squeals of joy and increase your kids’ curiosity? Absolutely. I didn’t set up the aiming scope portion because it was too flimsy, as is the tripod. And don’t expect the screw-in clamps to be able to hold a cell-phone mount steady. Use some “Grown Up Ingenuity” to make it work and it will bring lots of joy to backyard evenings.

    I swapped out the tripod for an old camera tripod that is a bit more steady. The telescope provides some great images of the moon. I’ll attach one to this review.

    I’d say it was a bit over priced for the amount of plastic, but for a couple of homeschooled kids, it has been perfect.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Muy buen telescopio mal tripié
    Reviewed in Mexico 🇲🇽 on August 4, 2020
    El telescopio me ha funcionado muy bien. He podido observar con nitidez la luna, las lunas de Júpiter y el cometa Neowisse. Ya pedí un lente Barlow para complementarlo, ya que la distancia focal es corta y con la apertura que tiene el telescopio tengo entendido que se le puede sacar más potencial. El único problema que le encuentro es el tripié, diseñado para cargarlo en la mochila es liviano, y vibra mucho, pero además el cabezal es de mala calidad y se batalla para ubicar con precisión los objetos. Afortunadamente trae un tornillo universal, por lo que se le puede adaptar otro tripié.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for viewing the moon with kids!
    Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on January 22, 2022
    Just to put my review in context. I, and my children, are total beginners. In fact, I’ve never viewed the moon through a telescope until now. In my opinion this is an amazing little telescope for viewing the moon with kids. It comes with two eyepieces. One eyepiece gives a clear and easy to view image. The moon appears relatively small in the viewing space, but crystal clear and surface details are noticeable. The second eyepiece is a little trickier, especially for the kids because the slightest wobble can knock it out of alignment with the moon. However, when you get it right, it magnifies the moon so it fills the majority of the viewing space. This makes it easier to see the craters. I also bought a phone mount and after a few nights of trial and error I managed to capture some nice images (I have cropped the images and increased the contrast by editing them) but I am pleased with them. I’m not sure this telescope will be any good for seeing Saturns rings or the lines on Jupiter. The tripod is definitely rubbish, as many other reviewers have noted, but ok for moon viewing providing you don’t touch the telescope once you finally have it lined up. In summary, if you’re after a telescope for kids or you just what to look at the moon then this is perfect.
