Great value for money Review by Nick
Overall Score
i have used this telescope a few times and must say that it was a good choice. Great for looking at Jupiter and Moon (i'm just a beginner) and i was told that i can use it for galaxies as well. The hand controller is very simple to use as well even for people who are not as good with technology. I would recommend for all beginners and families. (Posted on 12/05/2018)
