            impressed with the delivery, the packaging, putting it together tonight to try her out and looking forward to playing with it tonight. I read the reviews and feel I did my homework before purchasing, everything was positive, and the model I bought came well recommended for a novice. the quality I like too. So going to sit down and watch the CD.
            thanks

                  This was a Xmas present. I have used it quite often. It is easy to set up and to get working. The optics were less than I expected but on a good observing night you can see some detail in Jupiter and the moons look like small stars. When viewing Saturn you will not see the individual rings. Most of the time it is a silver disk with a ring around it; but it is still cool. There are four main drawbacks to this scope, which is why I gave it a four. The spotting scope mount is plastic and will break. The legs to the tray are also plastic and will break. I replaced this once. The extension legs could be longer. Also, the tightening knobs for the legs are also plastic and they will crack if over tightened. For a first scope I think it is great. I have only transported it once and did not have any problems.

                    Just got the scope and took it out for a spin. I'm just getting started, but the computer system seems to work well and the optics are very clear. I was checking out the craters of the moon with the neighbors last night. Very cool!

                      I got it last year and its really good. I could see Jupiter and Moon details so perfect.Trying to search for the lens which connect laptop directly to telescope which directly show lives images on laptop screen.

                        Wow, this is a great value. I've been looking for a computerized telescope as I rally don't know much about astronomy. I had to read the specs twice, this really is a fully computerized telescope under $300. I'm sold!
