100% would recommend to a friend
We brought this for my partners 9 year olds birthday and it was superb value for money really good quality and easy to use. I would strongly recommend it
Easy to set up and came with very clear instructions. Came with a load of guides too
Bought this for our grandsons 12th birthday and he loves it. We put it together before we gave it to him. The instructions could have been clearer but we managed to do it. He lives in the country so has good views from his window. He can see horses in a field miles away. He hasn’t managed to look at the stars yet because he is asleep before it’s dark so this is something for him to look forward to when winter comes. We are glad we bought it.
It has a good optical quality and you can observe the moon in detail. Planets however require a very high magnification and a precise aiming as they are arc seconds in size. This is where the package let's you down.. the tripod is the weak point as its meant for compact cameras and can't balance the telescope or point it with any accuracy. There are better options available for not a lot more money.

The included eyepieces work very well in providing clear, crisp views of smaller objects. You’ll find it easy to get good looks at the details of the moon and you can even see the crevasses of the moons of Jupiter. Suited for beginning astronomers.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for using Argos Q and A.

This is not recommended as the tripod and mount on this model are not designed to support an additional weight such as a smartphone.
I hope this helps.
