Loyal daughter

Per part

A beginner needs better instructions!

As absolute novices (and I mean total beginners) I got this telescope for my dad who has Parkinsons. The reason I chose this one is that it is compact and looked quite sturdy and would be easier to set up on a table that using a full tripod mounted one. For these reasons this telescope is excellent and has proven a good choice. However as it is targeted at children and beginners I do think that better written instructions for set up and what bits go where would be a huge improvement. Also the description on the website (and other websites) say it has a red dot finder. There is no mention of this in the leaflet and so working out how/where and why is quite a mission when you don't really know what you're doing. eg There's a moon filter but no where does it tell you where that goes or how/why you would use it. All in all it's been a good buy. Dad is happy and capable of carrying it outside to a garden table, and he really only wants to be able to point it at something and see what he can see so we will play with it over time and hopefully help him scratch his itch to see something of the night sky. But a little more instruction and help with setup would be a huge improvement out of the box.

What kind of observations do you primarily do (or are you planning to do) with your telescope?

Basic

Pluses
  • sturdy
  • not too heavy
  • stable
Downsides
  • instructions are hard to understand if you have no knowledge
