In addition, there are multiple magnification settings, which my six year old enjoyed experimenting with, and the telescope is simple to transport. (Personally, I consider this a huge bonus, as it was easy to move to a relative's house when I knew we had a dinner at a location lacking an abundance of kid-friendly diversions.) In the future, I'd even consider taking the telescope on our annual vacation to Florida to see what we can observe of the heavens over the Gulf of Mexico. In the meantime, I'd readily give this product a rave review--and would guess it would be the "jewel in the crown" as far as holiday gifts go, if you have a child who's interested in science.
Pros: Super easy to assemble and has a variety of magnifying lenses. Instructions are self-explanatory and straight forward, so there is no confusion. Lenses are very easy to interchange and secure with a single screw. Great first telescope and an excellent value for the power it contains, especially when you use the enhancing power Barlow lens. Most constellations and the moon seem very close, which is exciting for my kids to view. This keeps them coming back for more! Extra bonus for Mom, it looks great in our central family area.
Cons: View finder is placed close to the lens, so using it is a little awkward at times. If it was further up on the telescope, then it would be easier to use. The Barlow lens that doubles the focal power requires you to either use a step stool to reach the lens or lower the legs to use by much younger children. Not an issue for older children (such as ours) or adults. A nice improvement would be to widen the accessory tray holes so that the lenses can fit in while they are in their cases.
All in all a great product and an excellent value!!
