I am pleased with the product.

I chose this product because it meets my requirements for a telescope. The product is fine, and the view is clear, I have not been able to find deep space objects yet.

Pluses
  • Sharp
  • Handy in use
  • Slow-motion searching
Downsides
  • No clear explanation about searching for objects
