Screws strip easilyI bought this telescope for my son. As soon as we got home, we put it together. When I attached the eyepiece, the screw stripped. Mind you, I didn't screw it in hard at all. I will be taking this one back, and buying one with a metal eyepiece, rather than plastic, for I'm assuming that this will occur again if I replace it with the same telescope. I'm very unhappy with the quality of the product.

Awesome TelescopeI bought the telescope as a Christmas gift and my daughter loves it. I do have issues with distinguishing which eyepiece is for what.
