    From my mid-town Manhattan high rise apartment I have incredible city views including the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the new Freedom Tower, and the Hudson river.
    This scope was made to order as the zoom feature just makes the cityscape pop. I'm afraid that with NYC's light pollution, the only thing visable in the night sky is the moon, but if you live far away from city lights you will likely do better.
    I ordered it late Monday, it shipped Tuesday and arrived Thursday in a factory sealed box. It took me about an hour to unpack it and put it together.
    If your looking for a terrestrial scope for day or night viewing that can also be used for limited stargazing, you can't go wrong with the Alexander. I would advise however that the tripod legs require great care when you adjust them.
    Oh yeah, it's also a great looking piece of furniture.

        Comments about Zhumell Alexander Brass Zoom Telescope:

        Paid the extra $3 for express shipping, it was on my doorstep 2 days later. Gave it as a Christmas gift. No damage when we opened it. Assembly was straight forward.
        Only concern is that this is brass and I am not sure if it is clear coated to prevent tarnishing (preferred) or if it has to be routinly polished (not so cool). Only time will tell.
