    What a magnificent scientific tool! We appreciate the attention to technological detail that a Telescope is built with. We share the same enthusiasm in superior engineering for affordable prices. Thanks for sharing!

    Do a Google search before you buy this telescope, buying a used more conventional telescope off of Craigslist will get you much more for your money. It won’t look as “fancy” but fancy doesn’t produce great images, only quality optics can do that.

    So, how much zoom is this? 75X I think.

    The idea of using that, mounted on the side of another scope as a finder, gives me a semi.

    ..just had a look see at the VIxen, seems to be unavailable outside USA according to a quick google though it does look fine…but slightly concerned at the relatively low cost for a telescope, hehe sounds like I want to pay a lot out, …I don’t really but I would like something we can grow into
    budget would be about $350 in dollars about £200UK for now, for a base to get us going .then maybe we could add too over the coming years

    top man yourself, again, I appreciate your help.
    I’ll be picking one up soon with some research at the site you mentioned. Off to have look see at the VIXEN A 70Lf you mentioned,cheers

    Stay away from eBay scopes. a small refractor like a VIXEN A 70Lf would be a good scope, to name just one. A good site to look at is the CloudyNights telescope review site, they cover the pros and cons of each design.
