The telescope took about half an hour to assemble give or take then the next step was aligning the finderscope which was easy. I got lucky with the weather as viewing conditions were clear and there was no shortage of sights to behold. The moon first and then Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The belts of Jupiter and 4 moons were clearly visible and on Saturn Titan is easy to spot as is the Cassini division. Can't wait to see more.
Highly recommend! (Posted on 27 August 2018)
Assembly was quick and the moon and the craters is amazing. My only issue is that I can't see to find a way to fit in my little Mini easily and safely. I guess it will just have to stay at home.
I wonder if I can see Curiosity Rover with this telescope?

Looks great, can be hard to carry but once you get it out there, it is worth the effort. I used to have a small telescope I bought from the post office and this is on a completely different level. The Moon is actually bright and sharp! Saturn just used to be a blur and I can see the actual rings now. (Posted on 17 July 2012)
