I had read the reviews of this product, which inspired me to buy it. I'm not very experienced with setting up a telescope, but it seems pretty easy to do from what I had read. Wrong. Firstly, the 'manual' it comes with gives little step by step instruction and even less information about using for the first time. It basically assumes that you have some experience with astronomy and using a telescope.
I set it up properly, but can't seem to get get anything out of the main lens. The finder lens is fine, but there is nothing about using the main lens, or the other power lenses it comes with. The manual itself has no contact information or troubleshooting from the company. After looking up 'My First Lab', I found that they make this telescope exclusively for Amazon. I called the company in VA, but the woman said that no one was there to help me out. She also took my information, saying someone would either e mail or call me back. No one did.
I contacted Amazon customer support, only to find out the exact same information. They said they would be more than happy to replace the telescope, and I did this, expecting that maybe the packaging would be a bit different and I would get a better manual the next time. This was not the case, as I got the exact same thing again. So I set it up and then attempted to look through the main lens. Same thing.
I called Amazon yesterday, only to have the exact same scenario play out. As I explained to the representative I spoke to, it does not seem to be a problem with the product itself. For me, it's more of a support issue with the manufacturer. I think the facility in VA is just a shipping warehouse, the actual company is in China.Read more ›
This was a great find. Though we've only used it a few times, it gathers quite a bit of light and gives a pretty good view of other planets and a fantastic picture of the moon. The two eyepieces it comes with give you a good range of magnification and the included Barlow lens extends that even further. The tripod is nice a sturdy and gives a fair bit of height adjustability.
My only complaint here is with the mount. Quite often when the telescope is pointed at the desired object, tightening up the mount causes it to shift. This means you have to readjust and try to hold the telescope in place while re-tightening the mount. For the price, I don't expect a super high quality mount, but if the little one continues with here interest in Astronomy, we'll definitely be investing in a telescope with a good equatorial mount in the future.
