  • Not worth the price

    I received a worn out telescope, dingy and with broken rubber bands on the scopes. Remote is cumbersome, and has to be reset every time you turn it on: like the date, time, city, country, and aligning of earth. And it does not even take you to the correct place in the sky after aligning correctly. The moon was right above me, as wel as Orion, and it could not recognize them. I'm returning it.
