I bought this on a recent trip to the USA for the 21 August Eclipse. I am amazed how good it is for the price. It represents excellent value and the voice narrative of celestial objects is a hit with the children.

I also like that it can be battery powered. It is lightweight enough to transport readily and I foresee a lot of use. (Posted on 8/24/2017)

Fully Multi-Coated Optics from Meade Instruments who as of 2013 is owned by Sunny Optics, Inc. out of China.
Great 3" Short-Tube Achro Refractor used for Terrestrial spotting and Planetary/Lunar observation that can be utilized (when more invested in the hobby) as a guide-scope. Image quality is great as Meade optics excel past the mid-range amateur market. The chromatic aberration is minimal and the FOV is upright, crisp and sharp to the edges
Tripod is made for mobility (Grab n Go) and is lightweight so you will want to get a 2000g Calibration Weight with bungee-cord to hook on the bottom of tripod for stability.

Note: Get a couple of higher end eyepieces, as the ones provided are usable but not the best. *A good 9mm eyepiece + x3 Barlow will get 133.33 magnification as the scopes max is around 157. (Posted on 6/20/2017)
