Good firs ttelesocpe Review by FordJ
Overall Score
This is my first telescope. Optics are pretty good. Tripod is solid.

I have recently learned that I should be looking for a telescope that is at least 8 inches in diameter width, to maximise my viewing. I should have saved for a 150mm or a 200mm, on hindsight.

All that said, still a brilliant telescope with great optics, and highly recommended to a first time telescope owner. (Posted on 26/09/2015)
