    Adequate but could do with a spotter!
    Bought this for our grandaughter. When testing it before giving it to her I found it quite difficult to get a reaonable view but decided it was my inexperience! However, the real bugbear was a lack of a spotting facilityfor the initial lineup with a star or planet. Without this initial positioning it is dificult to see if you are in or out of focus or just not looking at the object!
    I bought a spotting viewer and taped it to the body allowing my grandaughter to be delighted at seeing the moon and stars/planets magnified.
    So, once set up, it works quite well but is a fiddle to get going for the uninitiated.
    lso, for the price, I thought the earlier review criticism rather unwarranted. It does the job for the price.

    RSPB response: Thank you for your review, we are very pleased to hear that you and your granddaughter are enjoying the night sky. With regards to the spotter we will pass on your comments to the product team.
