Great telescope for a beginner (I am a senior citizen - never too late to learn!). Very easy to set up. I have already taken photos on my cellphone of distant terrestrial objects and also got some of the moon the other night. I am loving this even though I have only had it for less than a week. Wonderful prompt service from Jacobs Digital. Very happy.
Very appreciative the staff took their time to help me choose this perfect model for my needs.
