I bought this telescope as a Christmas gift for my nine years old grandson and as it's not yet Christmas I can't tell you his reaction but I'm absolutely sure he'll be delighted with it.
personally I have been very pleased with the service that I have recieved from picstop. I purchased the telescope after phoning in gor a recommendation. The gentleman I spoke to couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Dispatch and delivery were very speedy and I am very satisfied.

Great product
Saturday, 4 January 2014  | 

I bought this for my 12 year old son for Christmas after watching "Gravity" at the cinema as he was so interested in space. First rate service from Picstop as the product arrived very quickly. Early days at the moment and we are waiting for clear night skies but the product is robust and easy to use and very sturdy on a flat surface (which is what you need to use a telescope). What we have seen so far has been crystal clear and exciting. I think the price is reasonable and I would recommend this product.

Well made stylish telescope, always ready for use
Tuesday, 31 December 2013  | 

I'm very impressed with this telescope and with PicStop, the supplier. I ordered the telescope in a very busy period just before Christmas and it arrived within a couple of days. I already have a lovely big professional quality Russian-made reflector telescope which takes quite a while to unpack, assemble, set up and acclimatise, but I wanted something small and always ready to use. The Celestron Firstscope is ideal and attractively designed. Looks good on a dresser or bookshelf. It's not a kid's toy, far from it. The supplied eyepiece lenses are adequate, but I prefer to use the high quality lenses from my other telescope. The Dobsonian style mount is a joy to use and remarkably stable given its simplicity. I've already viewed Jupiter and the Moon from my window sill!. Don't expect high magnification. Comfort, stability and clarity are much more important. I expect to use this telescope quite often from now on while the other one languishes in the attic.

Purchased as an Xmas gift for my grandson. As an amateur astronomer, I'm keen to pass on my enthusiasm, I've taken a quick look at this wee telescope and am impressed with both the optical & mechanical quality. I hope the grandson is equally impressed come Christmas, and that he has clear skies during the remainder of the school hols!

Great first telescope
Friday, 3 June 2011  | 

Got this for my 9 year old, he loves it, good build quality and no set up required. All you have to do is decide what eyepiece out the two supplied to use. Very sturdy on a swivel base and can easily lock into position. Just wish it wasn't so cloudy all the time!
