Lianne, South Africa. 16 November 2016

Good telescope for a beginner or for someone that wants to look at the moon and stars but not necessarily see the dust on them. It's easy to set up and instructions on the different lenses is understandable.

SR, South Africa. 26 December 2016

Very shaky

Davin, South Africa. 29 October 2015

This telescope is very cheap. Its made from plastic and the stand is fragile and unsturdy. It would put a beginner off using telescopes. Rather spend more money and get a decent solid scope.
