If you're looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the AstroMaster Series is for you. Each AstroMaster model is capable of giving correct views of land and sky. The AstroMaster Series produce bright, clear images of the Moon and planets. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments. For views of the brighter deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae, we recommend the larger aperture and light gathering ability of the Newtonian reflectors.

Decent telescope for the $
Assembly was fairly straightforward. Not for the impatient type! Takes a little while to hone in on objects of interest that you can see with the naked eye.

This is a great entry level scope. There are no Cons on this scope for its price range.
