                                                                            A decent telescope for a reasonable price

                                                                            The telescope I purchased at Red Carpet Telescopes was offered at a very good discount price. When the telescope arrived I was surprised that the secondary mirror offset was considered as it should be with so-called fast telescopes. Thus, the size of the secondary mirror is just right. You only should consider buying a decent Barlow lens and a few additional eyepieces as the telescope comes with one 25 mm eyepiece. The included eyepiece is of a very decent quality too.
                                                                            I do recommend this telescope to beginners and any other amateur who's either getting back to hobby or looking for a nice portable telescopes for either outdoor or 'balcony' sessions.

Knowing what I know now about lenses and magnifications I would have bought a larger telescope for I have reached my telescopes magnification capacity. Can you see Jupiter or Saturn? Yes! But I had to buy a 2x focal extender with a 4.7mm lens. Without it you can see Jupiter and it's moon and Saturn(but it's small) With the focal extender and lens, Jupiter looks good and you can see the space between Saturn and it's rings. The moon views are spectacular though!!! Overall it's a great telescope, but I plan on upgrading to a larger telescope.
