Better Than Expected,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GSI Super Quality Mega Land And Sky 76mm Reflecting Telescope - Optical Glass Lens and Metal Body - Includes Aluminum Tripods and All Accessories (Electronics)
I wanted a modestly priced telescope for occasional viewing. This particular product looked like a good fit, so I placed my order. Afterward, I read the reviews posted by previous purchasers and began to wonder if I had chosen well.
The telescope arrived on-time and very well-packaged. I am not a handyman. I dislike construction and assembly projects. Mechanical engineering is not my forte. So, after removing the telescope, parts and instructions from the box, I put them aside until I felt adequately motivated to undertake the assembly. Today, 10 days later, was the day!
Unlike some reviewers comments, I was favorably impressed by the initial "out-of-the box" quality of the telescope and the associated parts. I remembered thinking, "this is very nice for the price!"
In my opinion, post-assembly, the GSI Super Quality Mega Land and Sky 76mm Newtonian Reflecting Telescope is one helluva buy for the money! I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants a high-quality telescopic viewing instrument at a budget price. I am well pleased with my decision to buy the GSI, compared to similarly-priced telescopes offered by Amazon.
