    Cheap for a reason - Bird Jones design.
    Save up and get something decent (e.g. Skywatcher Heritage 130p).

    Definitely. Skywatcher Heritage 130p is the best beginner telescope. Simple to use, good optics. With one of these you can see some detail of the weather systems on Jupiter. You can pick them up for about £200, a little over half that if you can find one second hand.

    I have the exact same model. Honestly it’s a real pain to use. Am not new to using telescopes but not an expert as well. With this particular one, am still waiting to sight anything possible in the night sky. All that I have seen through this is my neighbors car registration plate in day light when trying to setup the view finder. Having sacrificed few hours of sleep without any gain, decided to give it a break….hopefully I get see “something” in my next attempt 😄

    If the moon is visible in the night sky, you'll be able to see it with this.

    The mount is the wrong kind for astronomical observation. The telescope is the wrong kind for terrestrial observation.

    Any recommendations for beginners for people that have commented?

    instead of this pretty bad telescope if anyone is thinking of buying a small inexpensive telescope look into a table top Dobsonian somthing like a 80mm or 100mm or bigger if you can afford might cost you a bit more but trust me its a way better option

    Guys please help . Is this above better than this one jessops.com/p/c….ds
    jut1972's avatar
    I'd say that one at Jessops is a better deal, easier to use, less faff and more portable

    I used this and was able to see someone on the international space station taking a shower.

    Greatest comment I've ever seen on here. Ha Ha Ha

    Is this too powerful to keep an eye on my neighbours?

    You do know every house around you now uses iron clad curtains?

    For this price better buying some decent binoculars. This is the sort of scope that ends up unused because it's a pain and won't wow you when you do see something

    Not the greatest reviews at all
    R2FyeSBMYW1iZXJ0's avatar
    Think it’s for beginners. It has been posted here at this price before so maybe someone will give a review

    Normally I'd say stay away, but with an alt azimuth mount that's not bad. Stay away from the cheap EQ mounts.
    ecuador's avatar
    You are mistaken. I would say a bad alt-az mount is usually much worse than a cheap EQ mount. And this is a quite bad one.

    Can I see Uranus with this?
    chrsphr's avatar
    Going to answer this seriously - a scope like this won't be any good for anything smaller than the Moon, Jupiter & Saturn at stretch
