Perfect Starter Telescope
Thursday, 2 January 2014  | 

Arrived promptly, and after some initial set up (it's a more substantial bit of kit then you may imagine) it was ready for use.

Took it out on the first night and it was a nice clear evening for some gazing. Jupiter was looking bright, so using the red dot finder it was quite quick to lock onto it. Jupiter was an amazing sight, we saw the four big moons of course, but more than that a number of the cloud bands on the surface. Pretty amazing that with something this price you can get a nice view of Jupiter and its bands.

The telescope itself is very solid, the tripod is very sturdy yet nice and lightweight. A great piece of kit for the price, I suggest also getting a x2 barlow for it as the telescope can certainly handle the extra magnificiation.
