Good basic telescope
Sunday, 21 October 2018  | 

I am very pleased with this purchase and it largely meets my aim of a low cost instrument that will be quick to set up and convenient to use. The tripod gives a secure base for operation, although it should be noted that the triangular accessory holder is required for best stability and is a bit of additional fiddle in the dark. For best speed of bringing the instrument into use I have kept it in a largely assembled state so that it can just be bolted on to the tripod. This does require a suitable storage system to be made.

The eyepieces have been good so far and the prismatic system enables viewing from a convenient position. The red spot view finder is good in theory, but in practice I have not found it particularly helpful. It works on bright objects, which were easy to aim at anyway. If the target is a dim object or a dark area of sky I have found it easier simply to ‘sight’ along the telescope.

Although the system is not on an equatorial mount, the altazimuth mount makes for simple setting up and since most use will be with lower magnifications it is not difficult to keep objects in the field of view.

After my experience with one of these telescopes I have bought two more to use with a small group of teenagers.
