Telescope Currys

I've reserved one of these with my Amex card (£10off ) so now can anyone tell my why I shouldn't bother please.

you may want to check out the celestron 70 Travelscope kit in Amazon for £51.67....

Total rubbish. Nowhere near wide enough mirror for any meaningful use. Add in the loss of light from the eyepiece mirror to such a small mirror diameter/aperture and this is basically a 2 inch newtonian reflector, useless for pretty much everything.

You'd be better off with a pair of binoculars for your 50 quid.

Well, if you don't mind being labelled a Voyeur, then go right ahead.

Cold - As said above, its too small to be any good, more likely to put people off astronomy than encourage it, spend your money on a pair of celestron skymaster binoculars you'll see much more and it'll be much easier to navigate the sky

Duly noted...thanks

Nice rant. Do you feel better now, or?

he's right. spend the 50 on good binoculars. unless you want a telescope shaped ornament as a talking point for parties.

Wasn't a rant. It was meaningful advice to a fellow HUKD'er about to waste money on what might as well have been a piece of drainpipe with a shaving mirror stuck in one end. If mission's accomplished, then yeah, I do feel better. Thanks for asking.

Now down to £44.99, even cheaper for those interested in it.

As others have said, its not a good scope. Mirror far too small for anything other than the moon. Tripod is awful too. You can buy some semi decent 10x50 or 15x70 binoculars for that price.
