5.0 out of 5 stars It has fine tuning knobs so you can track during celestial viewing
By lwescott on March 7, 2015
I read many reviews for various telescopes in this price range before choosing this one. In the end I chose this for the following reasons:

1. The specifications of the scope. 90mm is the largest refractor scope in this price range.
2. The image is not reversed or upside-down. This means daytime terrestrial viewing is possible.
3. The mount is not a typical alt-azimuth. It has fine tuning knobs so you can track during celestial viewing.
4. This scope came with 3 eyepieces and a 2x Barlow lens. It also has a red dot view finder.

I was very skeptical due to the lack of reviews but it came with everything I wanted as a first time buyer. It arrived professionally packaged and with all the pieces. It was simple to assemble and I was outside calibrating the view finder within about 10 minutes. The moon is amazing, especially when less than half full. I can see Jupiter with 4 of its moons and if focused properly I can see the two major bands across its surface. To see Jupiter clearly I found the best method is to choose your eyepiece, focus it using the surface of the moon, and then use the view finder to target the planet.

The only thing I think this telescope could benefit from is a finer focus knob. It is however adequate if you are patient or use the method I mentioned above. I am attaching a photo of the moon I took my first day of use. I took the picture using my phone by just holding it up to the eyepiece so it is not crystal clear. The image you see through the eyepiece is very clear. I hope this helps others who are considering this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Meade Instruments infinity 60mm. AMAZING
By Amazon Customer on October 6, 2016
This telescope is awesome. It is the best choice for beginners to astronomy. It is very affordable and gives you the best bang for your buck. This telescope can see Jupiter and it's 4 moons, saturn, mars, and Venus. Not to mention the moon. Also, you can see the andromeda galaxy and the Orion Nebula. Those are just the highlights. You can see much, much more! I highly recommend this thing to everyone who is curious of what's out there.

Reviewed in India on November 27, 2019
Nice telescope. But the finderoscope is a bit difficult to adjust. It gives very crisp and clear images. The lunar surface can be seen with it dotted with a number of crates on its surface. Very mesmerizing to see through it. Distant planets like Jupiter and Saturn are also seen. If you are experienced then you can Andromeda too. Distant stars like UY Scuti and Rigel are also seen. If you are a beginner then this telescope is the best one to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great price and works for planetary and lunar imaging
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 22, 2021
Excellent beginner telescope that has served me well. I have taken pretty good quality images of the moon, sun and planets using the lucky imaging method. I had to put something heavy around the barrel to balance out the weight of my DSLR as the telescope is pretty light. You can see some of the brighter galaxies and star clusters with a low power eyepiece such as M42 orion nebula, Bode's galaxy, Andromeda galaxy, M13 hercules cluster etc. The planets especially Jupiter and Saturn look great with a 6mm eyepiece. You can see the cloud bands and multiple moons of the planets when the atmosphere is calm, however, Saturn's cassini division is invisible due to the small aperture.
