My son received this as a birthday present. Out of the box the elevation adjustment appeared to be broken (felt like stripped gears, wouldn't stay in place), which appears to be a common problem. However, after disassembling the mechanism, all the components were loose and needed to be tightened. A few turns here and there with screwdrivers and an Allen wrench, and it was remedied. The adjustments also seemed to get smoother with more use. Once the red dot scope was dialed in, it was surprisingly accurate. Finer adjustments through the big scope were mostly a matter of fudging here and there. I think this scope is great for what it is. I'm not into astronomy. It's a cool hobby, but I'm not willing to invest in quality equipment. That being said, this unit was good enough for me, my son, and a few adults to say "WOW!" looking at the moon during a cub scout meeting. Not a precision instrument, but good enough for casual use.

I bought this telescope for my science-loving brother's ninth birthday present. We were both really excited when it was opened. We read through the very confusing instructions and put it together. We went outside when it got dark only to get incredibly disappointed. The telescope's images were very blurry and we couldn't see much out of it. We brought it back inside and read through the instructions again, but my brother told me to go ahead and return it for another model, which I did. Also, the telescope tripod was okay, though it suddenly slid down as we were transporting it. The telescope was plastic, and I feared that if it was bumped into and fell, it wouldn't stand a chance.

      Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Edu Science Astro Gazer 700 Young Astronomer's Refractor Telescope:

      The telescope was easy to assemble, only 2-3 steps. It took less than 15 minutes to put it together and have it in place ... waiting for night to fall. My grandson is now an expert on the solar system and requires everyone to take a short quiz after he gives a mini lecture. Yes, it has stimulated his interest and kept all involved on our toes. We had to look up all the dates for eclipse in 2015. It is a product that young astronomers will enjoy.

                    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.

                          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.
