Questions about this item:

Irfan Ali K  I have assembled this telescope but dont kno how it works can you please guide?
Andrew R  Unfortunately this forum is really limited in the amount of information that may be conveyed. I would recommend reading the instructions included with the unit as well as consulting the manufacturer (who may offer tips and tutorials for the unit's use). Additionally, The Sky, Level 1 planetarium software (with 10,000 object database and enhanced images) is also included which may assist you in using this scope.
Shopper  I mounted following all directions (it comes with two eyepieces) with one I can see clear on day time but nothing at nigth I got it for my dauther and we are already frustrared?
Andrew R  Without knowing your exact circumstances it's difficult to provide accurate guidance, however it is highly probable that the unit was not aimed accurately. Small objects can be incredibly difficult to pinpoint accurately without practice. Try aiming for a large bright object in the night sky (like the moon) and that should help indicate if you have an problem with the unit or not.
Shopper  how to buy it ? may i use it to observe astro bodies at night?
Andrew R  This telescope is ideal for viewing celestial bodies. Purchasing is a simple matter of adding this item to your shopping cart and completing the checkout/purchasing process when you're ready to order.
