Product Review (submitted on October 22, 2009):
This is the best beginner scope ever made, and the easiest to use. For the money, you can't go wrong. I have larger, more expensive scopes from Meade and Celestron but this little Edmund gets far more use. Great views of the moon, star clusters, and Orion Nebula. You won't see a lot of detail on planets but will be able to see the rings of Saturn and Jupiter's moons. Before you lay out big bucks for a larger telescope I would highly recommend this as a first scope, If you already have a bigger scope, you might find the Astroscan a nice addition to your collection.
