I have a couple larger, more expensive telescopes and my 5 year old child was watching me use them and became interested. The trouble with astronomy is that for kids it tends to be a "don't touch" activity. "Here, look through here but don't bump the telescope... oops, you bumped it... now move while I point it back at the right thing... now look... you can't see anything? Move again while I adjust it... " No surprise when the kid loses interest and wants to go play with something else. I wanted a way to make astronomy more hand-on, exploration-based, and, well, *fun*.
I bought this telescope because I wanted something inexpensive and small for the kid to play and experiment with. I wanted it cheap enough I didn't mind so much if it got broken and I wanted it small enough the kid wouldn't be too intimidated to carry it around and explore how to use it. I picked it up on sale after Christmas for $15. Because I read some negative reviews, I went ahead and set it up to test it out before turning the kid loose, which was a good thing because trying to show the kid how to use it right out of the box would have led to frustration.
First, the bad: The negative reviews are correct. Right out of the box, this thing is a pain to focus on anything so that you can actually *see*.Read more ›
Conceptually it is a great product, assuming it works, it will excite kids as well as grown-ups. I bought this for niece and nephew. We were so excited about this product and finally when we got it, we spent almost 3+ hours to make it work (if we can say that). Tons of problems starting with focus. The first step in optical experiments is you need to focus on something that you already know it exists and then look for different things that are not visible with naked eye. I took almost 30+ minutes to just focus on tree top in the yard. Forget about anything else. That was the only success we had even after spending 3+ hours by 2 engineers.
Common guys, how hard is to make telescope in this age. Just put some time into design and usability before you release your product. UX, UI (borrowed terms from app or software) is what this product is MISSING.
Consumer products = User experience FIRST and Tech SECOND
This product deserves zero stars.
It is hard to throw this product in garbage because the concept is good and being an engineer you always think you can make it work someday. So it is sitting in our GARAGE instead of GARBAGE
