My 7 year old son wanted a telescope for Christmas. The first one I purchased I had to return being that everything was showing upside down. Due to Toys R Us terrific returned policy I was able to return the item to the school and purchased another one. The next one arrived and it was PERFECT! I highly recommend this product to ALL of the young scientist's out there.

        It's a great big universe out there, and you won't be able to see much of it with this telescope. Cheap, cheap, cheap build quality. Gears are stripped, nothing is as precise as it needs to be. About the best you can hope for is a good look at the moon, but it'll take you forever and a day to get it in focus. For this amount of money or just slightly more there are dozens of "beginner" telescopes out there made of much better material and of much better quality. We returned to Toys R Us and bought a better one elsewhere.

        Poor quality but you can fix it

              It is a poor design, especially the tilt adjustment and locking mechanism. BUT YOU CAN FIX IT. The tilt mechanism can feel as though the gears stripped causing it not to lock. You can fix it by opening the gear case to REALIGN the first gear's post. It turns-out that this post is eccentric. When you turn it, you can reduce the gear to gear center-line distance thereby ensuring proper gear meshing. Then lock that post in position using the hex socket screw. You may need to use lock-tite if this screw and post get loose again. When these gets loose, the centerline-to-centerline distance increases again and the gears feel srtipped but they are not necessarily stripped.

                    I got this as a birthday present for my 5 year old. He wanted a telescope. This is a good one! My only complaint is the lever/clamp that is on the side, to keep the telescope positioned, doesn't hold. So when I find something for my Son to look at the telescope sinks and he can't see it. I just hold the clamp thingy with my hand to keep it still.

                              Got this telescope for my 10 year old son as a Christmas gift. We were able to see two stars, then the slow motion screw stripped so his excitement lasted 5 minutes. We are taking this piece of trash back tomorrow and never purchasing an Edu Science product again!!
