Bit like you then..lol

dont need one wife can see eveything

Specs should quote objective diameter and focal length to be meaningful, but at this price one wouldn't expect much more than a toy anyway. WxHxD seems to be the size of the box, and the weight (half a hundredweight) seems a bit out of keeping with the item pictured.

The weight is required for balance.
This telescope would be great to look at the Moon + planets
Can't believe at this price also comes with software. That requires NS alignment and probably also a laptop?
Never seen a cheaper one, such a telescope (without software) is about £50 at Lidl before Christmas.

Yes I bought the Aldi one last year and wish Id gone for this, being in central Brum way too much orange light to see many stars but great views of moon and Jupiter/venus/saturn!
