  • Great purchase

    I bought this as a gift for a friend who really loves it. It is a step above the average telescopes you see everywhere. It was not as easy to set up as some have said but with patience and paying close attention to the instructions you will do fine. The tripod is sturdy and easy to use. This is a larger telescope so if you are going to leave it set up do it knowing that it takes up a bit of room. Good price and quality product.
