Amazing !!! Highly recommend

The telescope arrived yesterday, setting it up was super quick and very easy. So far my partner and I have seen the craters of the moon, Venus in one of its lunar phases where it looks like a crescent moon, Jupiter and its bands (stripes), also 4 of Jupiters moons, and we managed to see the rings of Saturn ! This was all in the first night of using this telescope. Very excited to see what else we can discover.
