Product Review (submitted on August 8, 2010):
I purchased my Astroscan 10 years ago for a grab and go scope when camping, traveling or just want a quick look at the heavens. The Astroscan still works great even after all these years. I now have a 7 year old son that enjoys viewing. I have several expensive telescopes but my son always wants to use the astroscan and asked me the other night if it could be his first telescope, of course it can I told him. For the wide field views, easy of use, portability, quick set up, durability this is a great telescope. I would recommend getting the tripod so you can set the scope up just about anywhere, highly recommended.
