roy, Co. Down

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Cheap. Reasonable image at fairly close range. Lightweight.
Bad points:
Poor resolution - blurred image for distant objects. Unstable - a single screw connects the telescope to the stand resulting in considerable unwanted movements. The controls are inconvenient - difficult to use.
It is more of a toy than a useful instrument - cheap as a telescope but expensive as a toy.

Ian, Cumbria. good value product

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good quality viewing. Exceptional value when compared to others on the market.
Bad points:
Fine focus and directional adjustments are a bit poor - screws detach or get too tight. Mini table top tripod is poor, and of limited use. Screw adjustments are tight and snag, or slip. I'm now looking for a full size more flexible tripod. Magnification method is poorly explained in the breif guide - eyepiece falls off when increasing to max magnification. Scale of magnification does not seem to be 20-60X range -difference between min max appears neglible..
