🚀 Abunda's Overview

This is our summary and key points to consider based on customer reviews.


This telescope has received largely positive reviews with customers praising it for its excellent build quality, impressive optics, and ease of setup. It is particularly appreciated by beginners and amateur astronomers for its value-for-money and user-friendly design. However, some users have noted that it might not be ideal for viewing certain celestial objects in detail due to a smaller aperture size and that the stand could be more ergonomic.

Pros

  • 🔭 Excellent build quality and sturdy construction
  • 🌌 Clear and vibrant images of the moon, planets, and deep-sky objects
  • 🛠️ Easy to assemble with clear instructions
  • 🏞️ Good for amateur astronomers and stargazing enthusiasts
  • 📱 Includes a smartphone adapter for taking photos

Cons

  • 🔬 Has a smaller aperture size, which may limit the level of detail
  • 🚸 Stand is shorter than optimal, causing discomfort during long observing sessions
  • ⏳ More time spent hunting for objects than viewing them
  • ℹ️ May not be suitable for viewing certain celestial objects in detail

Should I Buy It?

This telescope seems well-suited for beginners and novice users, owing to its ease of set-up, clarity of images, and additional features like a smartphone adapter. However, if you are more experienced or wish to observe celestial bodies in more detail, you might want to explore options with a larger aperture size and a more ergonomic design.


  • Aperture matters more than magnification
Color: AZ70400
I bought this knowing nothing about telescopes and not knowing what I could expect to see through this thing. Now I know more, I think this is a decent value, but it comes with A LOT of cons. In telescopes, the aperture size matters much more than magnification. The bigger the aperture, the better the image will be. This is a 70mm aperture (2.75 inches), which is about as small as you can get. It's typical for an "entry-level" telescope, and a decent value for the money if you want to get into stargazing without dropping 500 bucks or more on a bigger scope. However, if I could do it over again, I would've spent more and gone with a better one. First, as with all beginner telescopes, it is actually much harder to use than a more intermediate level one. This is something well-known in the amateur astronomy group I've joined, and they never, EVER recommend buying a beginner telescope, ESPECIALLY for kids. Because most kids like looking AT stuff more than looking FOR it. And with this telescope, far more time is spent hunting for objects than actually looking at them. My kid doesn't have the patience or attention span for that, but I rather enjoy the challenge, so I do it. Which brings me to the next problem. This is made for kids. As such, the stand is very short. Which means that all the time you spend hunting for things, you'll having to be hunched over, crouched down, or kneeling on the ground. And if you live in a place with a lot of light pollution, you won't be able to see much more than stars, the Moon, or the brightest planets. Even Mars is difficult to see through this telescope, and you can't make out any detail whatsoever on the surface. You can make out SOME faint detail on Jupiter, especially if you go away from light pollution on a clear, moonless night. And you can just make out Saturn's rings. Venus, on the other hand, is very easy to see. Especially now, near the end of April 2020, it is the brightest it'll be all year, so we've been looking at it every night. It's too bright, even at its dimmest, to make out any detail, but you can see what phase it's in. Galaxies, most nebulas, and many star clusters are beyond the ability of this telescope, but that being said, I was able to see a planetary nebula called The Ghost of Jupiter last night. For perspective, I've had a few weeks of use and practice, and feel comfortable with the telescope, and have a number of apps, charts, and star maps to help me find things, and it STILL took over an hour for me to finally find it, put it close enough to the center of my field of view to use with max magnification, and put it in focus. And even then, it looked like a hazy, bluish star. We couldn't make out any detail or the distinctive eye-shape that can be seen with even slightly larger scopes. Still, it was cool and the kid loved it. I consider it worth the effort, but my back is killing me today. Don't get me wrong, for an entry-level telescope, this is good. It'll serve our needs while we save up for an upgrade. But, like all entry-level telescopes, this is harder to use and not powerful enough to see much. All the time required to hunt for things, for what many may consider a disappointing result, could potentially end up killing a kid's enthusiasm. If you absolutely MUST get an entry-level telescope, this is a good choice. But if at all possible, save up and get a larger aperture. ... show more

  • Great start telescope

Great starter telescope. Easy to assemble and disassemble. Shows a great picture of the moon and other planets. Travel case makes it much more accessible.

  • Great quality
Color: AZ70400
Definitely great quality and love everything it comes with. The only issue I personally have is I hate having to read so much to get everything settled in. Wasn't hard to build, but I wouldn't remember how to assemble/disassemble by memory alone, and I'm definitely too lazy to keep reading the instructions each and every time I want to use it. Definitely have to be a little ambitious to start to learn all the different functions of the lenses that come with the item. BUT, I was able to find and focus on the moon the first night I assembled it. My boys absolutely loved it, but they're definitely not old enough to function on their own yet. Will probably keep in storage till they're old enough to figure out on their own, which makes the bag that it comes with great! Very easy to store and move around. ... show more

  • Great telescope at a great price
Color: White
Love the looks and build quality of this scope. I highly recommend this scope for the on the go. It’s just what I was looking for as 2024 solar eclipse about a week away. I have had many different telescopes but they cost much more then this but was too big and heavy for transporting plus the set up was costly of time. I recommend this scope and a few filters and maybe a high quality zooming eyepiece. Don’t get me wrong, I think the eyepieces in this kit are good for the kit. I like one eyepiece that does it all and makes it easier to transport. I want to say it’s a great telescope will give you hours of entertainment. Please keep in mind that I used a solar filter and a celestron XY cell phone camera mount to get these results. ... show more

  • High quality, hard to set up
Color: AZ70400
A great idea but in reality, for novice astronomers, like us, this was not easy to put together and make work as intended. The instructions were vague, not clear to understand. Some of the language or lingo was very unfamiliar which caused further confusion. After 4 different competent adults attempted to put the telescope together, using more common sense than anything else, none were ever able to get it to work properly. And boy did we all try for hours on end. In particular, we never could figure out how to get the scope to focus and be able to view the moon properly. Clarified, step-by-step instructions that explain to someone who is unfamiliar to the subject would have been more helpful. We were not successful with either viewing "How-To" videos nor with a customer service to assist. The quality and design were good but being able to use it was a failure. Best of luck to anyone who masters this piece of equipment. ... show more
