Fair product for decent price.Was disappointed that it did not come with a case. Saw it on line at another retailer that offered it for the same price, including case.

Great Beginner TelescopeI bought this for my 9 year old son. It is a great started telescope for him to decide how much he likes star gazing. It can be a little tricky getting it all set up and understanding how it works, so an adult definitely needs to help. Overall though, really good for the functionality that we needed.
