Product Review (submitted on December 31, 2009):
This is an excellent piece of scientific equipment. My wife just purchased the scope along with accessories for Christmas. As with others on this site, I recommend the 2.5x magnifying lens/tube. Clarity and quality are amazing With the stock optics you can see quite a lot. I would also recommend the tripod. The design is simple and quick to use. The height is adjustable for usability for people even taller than I am (I'm 6'5" and still have to shorten the tripod from its maximum length for viewing comfort.). Recommended for all ages that can appreciate the night sky.
