After reading lots of reviews on this scope I decide to buy one and try it out, so I did and here my mini review of this $88.00 scope. Scope arrived boxed very well the fit and finish of this little scope was very good, the lens was very clean and well coated the 1.25 focuser is very nice and smooth working and yes the scope and tube seem to be all metal very little plastic,over all a very nice looking scope. If your like me and were looking for a scope that's light weight and easy to use both day and night and that gives wide field view then this just might be the scope for you. A quick first light with this scope using a Celestron 25mm X-cel and a Meade zoom I was very surprise the views were nice and sharp when viewing the sword in Orion with the 25mm the views were very good easy to see the whole sword plus star were pinpoint, when using the zoom and higher power I could make out the central 4 stars and faint gray nebula of M-42 over all this little scope seems to have good optics. This morning I got a quick view of the moon using the Meade zoom the views were very sharp from 26mm to 6mm lots of nice detail to be seen very little false color if any could be seen around the moon. There you have it for the price what more could you ask for also I found I did not need to use a finder on this scope to use this scope to locate most objects. Over all a best buy for the money in my opinion, clear skies.
