Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and easy to use! We are having a lot of fun with this telescope! It was very easy to set up- we did it just using the picture diagram (labeling part a, part b, etc) didn't need the written instructions. We did have to go through the instructions on locating and focusing, but it only took a few minutes. It was so cool to see stars up close, especially when we found a cluster of stars. We're taking it to the soccer field tonight to hopefully see the moon after practice if it's a clear night. It's a very good value and looks so professional even though it is lightweight, Would be nice if they had included a pouch or bag for the extra lenses since it does come with several. Recommended!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stargazing Fun! This is a first telescope for our family, and I am happy with the ease of assembly and use for my six year old. With help, he is able to adjust the magnification and view the stars! It has sparked his interest in learning more about stars and planets! I also brought this telescope into my school to show my third grader students how a telescope works, and the 8-9 year old group loved it. This would be a wonderful gift for a child ages 6-10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as an Introduction to Telescopes We have been having a great time with our new telescope and love the new worlds it has opened up for us. Let me start off by saying how easy it was to put this telescope together. My first reaction when I opened the box and saw all of the pieces was "oh no, this is going to be take a while". My boys have lots of energy and I wasn't sure they were going to have the patience to wait it out. But, it actually went together quite quickly. The pieces were labeled well and the instructions were detailed yet easy to follow. We have been very impressed by what we have been able to see. The kids, as well as the adults, loved to be able to see the precise details on a recent crescent moon, and it was nice to be able to get a closer look at the stars that make up some of the familiar constellations. We also were excited to take a peek at the details of the nest the birds have been building towards the top of one of our trees. The telescope has opened up a world of adventure in our own backyard and we know that we will be bringing the telescope along with us on our future camping trips. I do have to agree with another reviewer that the one downside is not having a case or travel bag to easily tote it along as well as store the extra pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect 1st Telescope! My girls (8 & 10) received this telescope a few weeks ago as a gift and are addicted! It has taken residence in our sun room overlooking our wooded lot, where the entire family enjoys watching the phases of the moon, the stars and the various wildlife living in our backyard. Pros: Super easy to assemble and has a variety of magnifying lenses. Instructions are self-explanatory and straight forward, so there is no confusion. Lenses are very easy to interchange and secure with a single screw. Great first telescope and an excellent value for the power it contains, especially when you use the enhancing power Barlow lens. Most constellations and the moon seem very close, which is exciting for my kids to view. This keeps them coming back for more! Extra bonus for Mom, it looks great in our central family area. Cons: View finder is placed close to the lens, so using it is a little awkward at times. If it was further up on the telescope, then it would be easier to use. The Barlow lens that doubles the focal power requires you to either use a step stool to reach the lens or lower the legs to use by much younger children. Not an issue for older children (such as ours) or adults. A nice improvement would be to widen the accessory tray holes so that the lenses can fit in while they are in their cases. All in all a great product and an excellent value!!
