Good telescope for beginners
Tuesday, 10 August 2021  | 

This is my first telescope and I'm satisfied. The transport to France went well. Easy to assemble and use manually. What I like: the 4 accessories provided : the 2X Barlow lens and the 3 eye pieces. The equatorial mount is stable. Good value for money.

Begginer Telescope - Fantatsic
Tuesday, 28 April 2020  | 

Been looking for a telescope for a while - with time now on our side I was able to do some research and settled on this one - The service received from PiCStop though especially during this period was fantastic! Ordered and received within 48hrs.

The product itself is easy to set up - although who has a DVD player anymore... The online tutorial covers off 2 Meade telescopes and is not specific to the Meade Polaris 130mm.
This YouTube video was the best one I found -
Once set up – WOW, the night sky is yours to explore – I struggle a little with the sight – I am sure that’s more me than the device though – so I am going ‘manual’ and wow – there is a lot going on

Well worth it in my opinion.
