Great for a starter telescope

By

from Millburn, NJ  -  Casual/ Recreational

I bought this for my 9-year-old nephew, and tested it before I gave it to him. It's great for looking at the moon, and is sturdily built for being so inexpensive. I was worried that he wouldn't be able to operate himself, but it's simple enough to use that he can. He's enthralled by it. The manual says that you can see features on Mars, the rings around Saturn, and the moons of Jupiter. I haven't put it to those tests yet.

Shopper  I'm trying to decide what to get. Why did you pick this one?
DEBRA M  This telescope was a gift for my 6 year old nephew. I was looking for a basic scope, lightweight and easily transportable for him and his Dad to take along and learn to use. This one fit my needs.
Shopper  What do I need to attach this to a Nikon d3100 camera?
Andrew R  Most likely you will a T-adapter ( http://www.adorama.com/CNTAB.html ) and the appropriate T-mount ( http://www.adorama.com/LNTMNK.html )
