    Astronomy fun for my Grandkids

    This Telescope is the most fun purchase I've made in many years. My grandkids absolutely love it. There's a self taught astronomy workshop out in my backyard as I write this. They figured out how to use the included Trilion star map right away. When in doubt, ask a 12 year old, ha ha.

    Astrophotograpy is cool

    I would recommend this telescope to anyone out there with an interest in the Astrophotography experience. As hobby nature photographers my girlfriend and I have recently ventured into this new ara of photography. Why did we wait so long. We've used the bundle packaged moon filter for some stunning moon photos that we plan to print and frame.
