- Questions & Answers
Product Questionsis this recommended for first time users? is it user friendly? what is a finderscope? is the tripod included in purchase? how high is the tripod? what is your return policy if i am now happy with the product? is shipping included in purchase?Question by: OMIKA on Feb 19, 2015 2:20:15 AMThis scope would be for first time users and children. With a 60mm lens, you can see major features on the moon and brighter objects like the moons on jupiter. It would be a little tougher to see any detail on the planets like Jupiter and Saturn. because the lens is only 60mm. The finderscope is aligned with the main telescope so it helps you to sight objects before you look in the 60mm
scope. The return policy is 30 days and you would have to return it with just as it came. And
shipping is not included in the price.Answer by: Steve_T on Feb 19, 2015 11:03:51 AM
