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:

    We bought this for our son on his birthday. The telescope was very easy to put together and it seems well built. The extra lenses are nice, but easy to lose, if you are not careful. The lenses do come in plastic containers to keep them from getting scratch, which is nice. The telescope is easy to take apart and carry if you want to be on the go with it. The only problem for us is we live in the Suburbs, so there is still a lot of lights around that affect what you can see.

      This is not a "telescope" it is merely a bird-in-your-backyard binoculars. I am very disappointed.

        My step son loves the stars and we bought this for his birthday and he loves it and although I know nothing about telescopes his father does and he let me know that this was surprisingly a great telescope and isn't just a toy. He can actually use this as he grows into an adult.

            TRU might be doing something new with this product, because assembly was super easy. The sight just snaps on the main tube, which is already attached to the mounting bracket. After sliding it onto the tripod, the telescope is ready to go! The 26x lens is very crisp, plus you get a 72x to swap out. The user photos of the moon are really how detailed it looks in this telescope. The included star chart is baffling, though, and I haven't tried the software yet. I can imagine young users get bored if they're not given something other than stars to look at, so prepare. My kid enjoyed using it with me just like I shared a telescope with my dad. Nice quality for the price.

              Purchased this item for my 7 yr. old grandson. He expressed an interest in science and we hope it will interest him enough to not play video games all the time. Unfortunately it is having to stay at our house due to space at his home so I only hope he gets to use it as much as I would like for him to!
