Summary: Very Satisfied
November 5th, 2010
I wanted to buy a telescope because im becomeing more and more interested in our solar system and the universe. I am very pleased with this telescope so far. The only objects you can realy study with this scope will be the planets in our solar system, and thats fine for me as an amateur astronomer. This is a very good scope for a beginer because it doesn't break the bank, and I am learning alot about lenses, filters, and other accessories that will enhance the scopes potential.  Eventually (when my finances allow it) I will purchace a larger telescope to study objects deeper in the universe. Over all im happy with my purchase, and look forward to expanding my favorite pass time. Keep looking up and enjoy the universe that gave us all life.
