This versatile rich field telescope is quick to set up and simple to use.

It is a great first telescope. It has very little chromatic aberration, and its wide field of view is quite crisp and provides fine views of star fields and the moon. It is not quite as well suited for viewing the planets and smaller deep sky objects. It is rather short, which can make viewing of objects which are low in the sky rather awkward. Like all reflectors it can be somewhat counter-intuitive when trying to center the view on an object.

The base has a handle that makes it quite easy to carry.
