I bought this telescope because my 5 year old loves outerspace,but I didn't want to go get some piece of garbage from [...] that has less power than my cell phone camera. I know nothing about telescopes, so I cant really compare this to others. However, if you are a first timer who wants to get into stargazing, but not quite sure what to buy, this is probably the route you want to go. It is relatively inexpensive, has enough powert to see real cool stuff up there, is easy to set up, and is pretty good quality. It is a little heavy, so Dad, you're going to have to carry it in and out for junior. Do your research and ask questions, but for first timers, I think this one is a good starting point.

    This is a holiday gift for my son and young grandson. While a precision instrument it doesn't appear too daunting to use. I am sure they will get many hours of enjoyment looking at the night sky. I was amazed at how quickly it shipped and am totally pleased with the product and this company..

          This was a gift from my wife for my 76th birthday.
          I thought this was going to be a major undertaking,
          but it proved me wrong. This is my second scope over
          my lifetime. I'm setting down going through the instructions
          before I go out here in Maine. We have the night sky, ocean,
          and mountains to look at much closer than ever before.
          Best gift ever . Larry Harr
