although I've not had the opportunity to see the stars yet as where I live the night sky is light all night I'm sure the scope will be excellent. I have used it for terrestrial viewing and was impressed with the clarity.

Super cool telescope. Not the easiest to set up for a beginner but once you have it blew my mind how clear the moon was. Waiting for the next clear night to see Mars

This is an excellent scope for the beginner. It is easy to set up and use and the image quality is good. I would recommend a decent Barlow lens though.

I found the telescope relatively easy to set up. I am a novice stargazer, so largely unfamiliar with telescopes. I am growing in confidence the more I use the scope and very happy with the service and the quality of the product.

So far so good, due to the weather I've only used it once outdoors. The quality of product is good, instructions were easy to follow, took a while to get to grips with the tripod, that's me not using one before, but with a bit of play in the house got that sussed now. The images of the Moon and Orion's Belt were great, clear and detailed. I'm a novice with this equipment, but it's ideal. I can't wait for clearer sky's. A lot of websites suggest getting a Barlow Lens! I might get one later, but for now things are good. Previously I bought a novices 70mm scope for about £80 quid, that was rubbish compared to this. Recommended.

Straight to the Moon and beyond!

Telescope is absolutely beautiful, powerful and easy to use after reading the manual and a few other video tutorials of course, but once all that setting up is done, you’ll be be looking at the sky in no time. So far I’ve been able to gaze at the moon with the 10mm and 20mm eyepiece (with the quite essential help of the finderscope) and it looks fantastically terrific.

Also, thanks to PicStop as delivery was quick and well packed without any issues.

The optics on the telescope are great. The mount is really frustrating though and is really wobbly too. If it came on az mount it would suit beginners better
