its going to be bad for 50 quid, like a magnifying glass attached to a empty toilet roll, no joke.

It doesn't seem to come with an erect-image prism, so the neighbours will be upside down ;)

Although it does not have the completely useless eyepieces that other telescopes at this price have (these are MA it seems), the mount/tripod is very bad, which makes it a bit frustrating to use (in comparison to, say, the Skywatcher Heritage 76 which is usually at a similar price). This must lead to many returns if I can tell from the refurbished availability (£35 shipped on ebay).

Not bad i’ve used this type which is a Newtonian, mirror on the rear, great for local Solar system, though buying a few decent eyepieces will go along way to improving your experience. Try Plossl 20mm.

It does seem to read that way, but I think it's referring to the light inside the mount to help see the coordinates? It is a bit confusing though, you're right

My bf bought me a telescope for my upcoming birthday even if I'm not a guy (women don't tend to be into this stuff but I am). Cost £129 but it is a Sky-Watcher Explorer-130 EQ2 Telescope. I am still figuring out how to use it and I signed up to a stargazing forum to get some help.

HOTPOT

I bought a cheap telescope & was lucky enough to view the Milky Way. Mars was as clear as a bell. Galaxy was perfect until I unwrapped it & ate it.

maltikism

Wilkinson's are very good. I buy my cleaning products and binbags from there at a very reasonable price. Heat added.

GlentoranMark

Divide the focal length, 900mm by the eyepiece focal length so 20mm will give you 45x and 4mm will give you 225x. If you add the Barlow you will get 135x and 675x. The 675x will be unusable but I bet you try it :) Your focuser is probably a rack and pinion (the same on most scopes) but it doesn't give fine adjustments, you will struggle at high magnifications to get things in focus. I try and focus on a star before turning to a planet.

stethorn

20mm works great, 4mm you struggle to focus a little, what’s magnified more 20mm or 4mm, I have a feeling it’s simply too close to focus so need to wait for the moon to be visible ;-(

Buy good binocular firstly as first step with astronomy for beginners eg Williams optics 10x50 ED or if you have more money Fujinion 10x50 FMRT-SX and also very good astronomy atlas with universe/sky map... do not waste your money for poor “telescopes”!

SpeedyG

Copypasta?

ecuador

Huh. This post is so wrong, I have no idea where to start from. And I am sure the poster would not understand, hence just posting for others that might be wondering what's all this about. So, first of all, the resolution of an optical system, i.e. the maximum quality you can get out of it if everything else is perfect, is limited by your aperture. The Nikon P900 has a 55mm aperture, so whatever you do, if you have a 60mm+ telescope of good quality, an imaging sensor as good as the one the P900 uses (not hard to find nowadays) will give you better quality images, because... physics. On to the focal length. I don't really understand what the above post is trying to say, but in general, astronomers, especially amateur ones, would love to have good telescopes of short focal length that are also affordable, but because a shorter focal length for the same aperture requires the light to bend more, it is much harder & expensive to make. The smaller focal length gives you a wider field of view and also requires shorter exposures in astrophotography, while it is relatively easy to increase your effective focal length (e.g. with a TeleVue barlow or Powermate) so you can do most things longer focal length scopes would do. But there is some misconception about what "equivalent focal length is". In fact, it doesn't have to do with the focal length itself, it simply gives you an idea of your field of view - i.e. your frame - so that photographers can compare it to their old 35mm film, because if you have a tiny sensor with the same lens, that tiny sensor would crop your image and you end up with a smaller field of view. In fact, the P900 has a 357mm focal length physically. The 10" LX200 mentioned has a 2500mm focal length, which means that with the same sensor items will be 7x larger than the P900. The 10" LX200 has a "35mm equivalent" focal length with that sensor of 14000mm !!! In fact, having a smaller sensor is a bad thing, not a good thing, as with a larger sensor you fit more things in your view, which seems like a smaller "zoom" if you print them at the same size, but a larger sensor (of the same generation) will maintain the quality, so if you cropped the smaller part and blew it up you would still get the image of the smaller sensor. It gets a bit complicated, but the result is that even at the price of the P900 you can certainly beat it in quality for moonshots with a combination of telescope/camera. For example take a look at a lunar image through the worst telescope I own (a 130mm newtonian - about £100 for the tube) with a £150 planetary camera (see it full size here): You can't get that quality with a P900, but with the telescope you need to have a mount, a small tripod won't do, plus with the planetary camera you get more clarity, but it requires to connect a pc and then processing to get all that detail (stacking, sharpening). So I would suggest the P900 for everyone who would like to point and click and get good shots. Just know that telescopes are a whole different thing both in complexity and potential results. If you already have a DSLR, a telescope is also a consideration since you can use your existing DSLR with it - but the telescope in this topic wasn't any good for that.

For every one kid that got a flimsy-tripod based little refractor and yet persevered despite how frustrating it was to point it, there are 10 that give up. Until perhaps 25-30 years ago, if you were on a budget you didn't have a choice, you couldn't avoid it. I was one of the minority who persevered (I got a 40mm "halleyscope", with a ridiculous "tripod" 30 years ago next month), yay for me, however in this day there is a choice. So, as I said before, for £12, I don't have to propose anything better (which is why I don't actually downvote this), and you are getting an interesting toy (it will work fine on the moon). If that's your budget go for it. It won't be a joy to use compared to other scopes that start at around ~£50 (although I usually give £100 as the starting point for new - but less for used), so you might turn some kids away. Your call ;)

These are brand-slap Chinese scopes (don't get me wrong, I have a cheapie monocular myself, but it cost £6-odd). Google images might bring up generics of this, though it's an oddly-angled picture the seller is using.

The specification of this scope is almost identical to the forty year old scope I actually have. Assuming similar optical quality you will see the main moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, vast detail on the Moon and a number of double stars and nebulae, as well as some of the brighter stars showing their true colours. Maximum usable magnification will be about 150. The tripod will be flimsy and that will make lining up difficult. The equatorial mount is useful because that allows you to follow and object with just one control as the Earth turns, I've always found this an extremely useful feature but would listen to experiences from users of Dobsonian or altaz mounts. It's powerful enough (if it has an inverting adapter) to act as a very powerful, but not very portable, terrestrial scope. My opinion is that, at the price, this is an absolute bargain and would be a perfect gift for a 14 year old who is seriously interested in astronomy. It's cheap enough to take the risk and good enough to do the job. Be prepared to spend many hundreds of pounds if the hobby takes off. Voted hot.

petermcgregor14

If you buy a telescope as someone new to astronomy you're probably best going for one with an Alt Azimuth mount as these are easier to use, though if you use it often an equitorial mount setup correctly, this will be better (however is a little more complicated to setup). Most people recommend that anyone new to astronomy go for as big an apperture (biggest diameter) as they can afford as this usually leads to better results. The cheapest large apperture telescopes are usually dobsonian ones and these usually have a small stand which you can rest on a table to look at the night sky. As Criton's friend states I wouldn't recommend getting a telescope from a high street store. Depending upon your budget I would go for one of these: Best low price (£47) https://www.firstlightoptics.com/beginner-telescopes/skywatcher-heritage-76-mini-dobsonian.html (Dobsonian) What images you can expect? you can just about make out saturns rings if you look at the pictures in the amazon reviews in this link --->: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sky-Watcher-Heritage-Mini-Dobsonian-Telescope/dp/B002PNJCCW Best Dobsonian under £100 (£95) https://www.firstlightoptics.com/beginner-telescopes/skywatcher-heritage-100p-tabletop-dobsonian.html (Dobsonian with slightly larger apperture) Best beginners telescope (£147) https://www.firstlightoptics.com/beginner-telescopes/skywatcher-explorer-130.html (equitorial mounted reflector) I would recommend this one personally as it is quite good for the price and you could use this for a good few years and still be happy with the images you are getting, whereas the other ones you may feel you want to upgrade if you get into astromomy. Hope this helps!

Oneday77

I completely agree with this. I bought a Bresser 76x700 or something like that a while ago. It’s impossible to keeps till and fine tuning to see a specific star is very difficult. Since then I’ve bought a decent pair of Vanguard binoculars and got a great deal on Celestron 20x80 binoculars. The later is difficult to hold but works Ona Tripod. In each case of both binoculars I see far better than with the telescope.

I have handed out a celestron 114eq from a friend and just started reading on the topic. Soon after a few astrology forum thread and Phillips books, I ended up buying binoculars. Even without settings up the telescope. Way too much to learn before moving into a telescope to appreciate it completely imho. Olympos 10x50 , Helios naturesport 2 plus are good budget ones. To start you can get an old super zenith 10x50 for 20 quid. Learning curve is steep. Once you now your way in the nightsky and know your telescope and what to expect , you can enjoy more...

Got mine today, makes it 3 weeks and 1 day. You have to adjust the eyepiece as well as the focussing wheel above, to get a good view - but it's pretty impressive for just under £7! Wouldn't want to risk cracking/scratching my glass protector with the phone clip, but the tripod is useful - the legs and screw are metal, though the feet and connecting piece are plastic. Seems to be various clones of this all over Aliexpress/Amazon/ebay, some even state 40x60 magnification which is a bit cheeky!! https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01M0744SL As other reviewers mention, I'd guess this is 8x or 10x magnification. Bought another clone of the Panda for my brother-in-law (we often joke how nosey and how much of a curtain twitcher he is, so it's perfect for him) Edit: Actually, tinkering around with mine, I've noticed there's nowhere for me to screw the tripod stand in (?!). On the underside there's only a hook for the carry strap. Sent a ticket to Gearbest, hopes aren't high that I'll get a reply that makes sense...we'll see.. Tested side-by-side with Steiner 10 x 26mm Safari Binoculars - I'd say they're similar magnification - the Steiner is *slightly* larger. Another Edit: The little "hook" actually unscrews to allow you to fit the tripod. D'oh.

Of course it can, as you know. The point is that a crappy scope is far more likely to be just left as a plaything, which a kid might pick up unsupervised, whearas a decent one would be far more likely to be looked after and used properly.

pasheast

So a more expensive scope that's not "rubbish" couldn't also seriously hurt a child if they're "playing about with it and point it at the sun"? (shock)

GlentoranMark

I'm also an astro "nut", own a small telescope myself (Celestron 102SLT) but I use my binoculars far more. I get the points including my own about how crap this is but it is a toy and if it gives a child a greater interest in the subject then that's brilliant. I'm dead against these scopes for serious use but for a toy they are great and for a coat hanger even better (I know, mine is used as a coathanger when not in use.) Just don't be expecting anything if you bought this. Please supervise a child when using this during daytime. I destroyed a 9mm eyepiece I got with my Celestron scope when I tried to project the Sun through it. I'm an experienced observer btw but even I didn't estimate the power of these small scopes. If I done it and I should have known the risks, think what a small child would do if he/ she tried to look at the Sun.

tinca

A nice pair of binoculars. That way they can be taken out for 'walks' as well

It's not a toy, it's a rubbish telescope that is worth less than nothing. As others have pointed out, a child could seriously hurt themselves with this and so it should not be given as a toy.

I can see you feel the need to have the last word. Feelings of inadequacy perhaps? Meaningless job? Too much tine? I know you'll be happy to share your opinion. Looking forward to it.

these are awful, not so much the optics, which sure aren't great, but more the positioning, adjustment of the legs, to find stuff, etc. but for £20 it's a good way to find out if you care enough to spend more I guess!

I just went and picked one. There were 2 left however, I don't think these are necessary ex-display. i found a receipt slip in mine saying it's been returned to shop because of a fault. I've called them and they were a bit confused and still insist they're ex-display so i'll give it a go as i have 21 days to return it but a word of caution so you know to try it out properly. the price is bargain though.
