really difficult to use, the easy ajust/slide bar doesnt work, the whole thing would be aswell in the bin, bought it for my sons christmas and we are disapointed that no one has enjoyed the use of it because we cant see anything and it is too late to get our money back.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
An excellent bargain!!! The box contains everything you need to start out with, and more! I bought it for my partner, and he was extremely impressed with it, and uses it all the time. He was very pleased at how easy it was to set up, with no complicated instructions. I highly recommend this for any person keen to start taking an interest ib astronomy. And the price is just another bonus...so affordable and well worth every penny.
