High quality, study telescope

Arrived perfectly collimated and exactly as I'd hoped! The telescope is clearly solid and very well made. The tripod is sturdy and easily holds the weight of the scope. Well worth the price in my opinion.

Excellent grab and go scope

Purchased this scope because I wanted an easy grab-and-go. I got much more than I expected, the optics are truly outstanding. Tested it out last night and views of Orion were clear to the edge of the eyepiece. Will eventually add some more eyepieces and a dew shield but for a grab and go option I couldn't be happier!

Comes with everything you need

This was my first "nice" telescope purchase and after researching scopes for months I'm so happy with my decision! The optics are wonderful and I love that it comes with the eyepiece, diagonal, and finder so it was ready to use out of the box. I didn't have to order any other pieces separately and it made the whole setup process super easy.

Great deal, shipped quickly

Shipped quickly, arrived collimated, and in perfect condition! The optics are very clear and probably worth the money all by itself. So far, the views I've gotten of Jupiter and Saturn have been incredible, though on the small side with the included magnification. The 25mm eyepiece is surprisingly well made, though I'll eventually add more eyepieces and filters which is part of the fun.
