- User Notes:
Telescope performs better than expected.Pros:
Optics are outstanding; Scope is a steal for price; Good, sturdy tripod.Cons:
Finderscope bracket is cheap and difficult; Accessory tray too small; Control cables slip.Comments:
The tripod and telescope perform better than expected for the price paid. At a mere $140 and a little knowledge of the skies (easily obtained from the freebee CD or wunderground.com's astronomy map), nebulae, galaxies, planets, clusters and anything else can be viewed from day one. The actual tripod frame and 'important' pieces hold up well and provide smooth operation. The optics of the scope were outstanding and the scope came collimated already perfectly. I have already used this scope to magnify and examine distant objects such as the Orion nebula, various other fainter objects, Saturn, Venus, the Moon, and Jupiter with outstanding results. Dollar for dollar this 5" reflector is hard to beat.Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? YesSort by
