Rated 4 out of 5 by OtherCvilleShopper Pretty decent telescope for the price
My 9 year old son loves this telescope. When we go hiking, he carries this as his backpack. Just the other day, he was tilting the area around the central column locking nut and it busted clean off (that part is made of plastic). I'm sending this one back for a refund, i'm hoping this was a fluke and not indicative of poor construction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GrandPapaAstronomer Yes to the telescope
Great beginning telescope. Bought more for bird watching, however, we are showing the stars and planets to our granddaughter and getting her involved with Astronomy. Great activity for granddaughter and Papa (who is an astronomer)

Rated 4 out of 5 by BarryJay Great for an Office Icon
Have a new office with large windows. Great icon and every once in a while, will use it to scan the horizon. Once the days are short, I'll no doubt look at the stars. Reasonable price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Geezer1431 Bean's TravelScope 60 Telescope
I have already returned this item to you.
The tripod is flimsy!
The scope moved in a breeze-unable to focus on subject...
Waiting for my refund.

Gave this to a family member of mine who loves astronomy. Works with a variety of accessories he already had. Perfect travel telescope for outdoor enthusiasts.
