This scope has power, mobility, and is literally ready to go whenever I am. The scope is powerfull enough to see the moon in detail, planets like Jupiter and Saturn, and larger or brighter objects like the Andromeda Galaxy.

This is first buy for telescope, and my wife and I wanted a good item that was not too expensive. This model is terrific becuase it is sturdy, easy to set up and has value for my family. My family enjoys being able to see many available celestial objects.
