The lens is actually not bad. With the included low power 20mm eyepiece you can get crisp, reasonably sharp views of the moon and stars. The higher power eyepiece is significantly dimmer, has a very narrow field of view, and is more difficult to use. It's really unnessary as you can see a lot with the low power eyepiece. There's also an adapter for use in viewing objects here on earth that turns images right side up (an astronomical telescope generally gives you an inverted view). It's long and makes the scope a good deal more wobbly than it already is.
Where this telescope falls short is the mounting and the construction. The eyepieces and the diagonal and the focused of the telescope are made of a thin, brittle, plastic that will require careful handling. The more serious problem is the tripod mount, which is wobbly and doesn't track smoothly. The moon and other objects in the sky are continually moving with respect to the Earth, so you can't just lock down the tripod and view. It's also very wobbly, so much so that viewing through the low power eyepiece is a bit difficult and viewing through the high power eyepiece is next to impossible.
Does this mean that you can't get a decent telescope for under $50? No. in fact, Celestron has a very stable table-top scope with an excellent 3" mirror that's superior in every way to this scope. It's designed for table top use, but it can also be mounted on a photographic tripod. And it comes with a useful guide to viewing the night sky- something the scope under review lacks. It's called the 21024 First Scope, and if you're looking for an inexpensive astronomical telescope for yourself or a child, I'd strongly recommend you buy that instead. For an additional ten dollars you'd be getting a lot more telescope.
I had a friend who was a serious, amateur astronomer, and he purchased an immense telescope for several hundred dollars. I was surprised that the barrel of that telescope was basically heavy cardboard. I was told that making it out of anything else would have made the telescope far too heavy to transport and set up. The lenses are the important part, and a cardboard barrel is not an issue because the scope is not supposed to be dropped, crushed, or used in the rain. If used properly, this little scope is terrific.
