excellent, economical telescope for a novice, lightweight yet powerful enough to see Jupiter and it's moons, Saturn and rings and the moonview is spectacular. a con would be the 4mm eyepiece. it should come with a 9-12mm eyepiece.

don't expect too much

I purchased this product for my daughter. It's very hard for her to use due to instability. If she touches the telescope while observing it shakes too much for her get any detail. Don't plan on seeing much more than the moon (detail very high). Other objects are just bigger bright blurs. Overall an inexpensive tool to observe the moon.

Comments about Celestron PowerSeeker 60 Telescope:

I'd have given it a full 5 stars, but Hayneedle purchase must have sent me 5 emails about the order and now I'm getting Hayneedle ads regularly on my computer. Now a survey.

Its a bit annoying.

          This is a Christmas gift for my 10 year old grandson. I didn't want to get him a poor quality telescope but I also didn't want to pay a lot of money for something he may only use once. I ordered this at 11pm, Sunday Dec 9th with free shipping. It was on my door step at 5pm Tuesday Dec 11th. Now that is service!! I know nothing about telescopes but I wanted to check out the pieces to be sure it wasn't "junk" and was amazed at the quality of the components. My grandson is going to be one happy camper on Christmas day.

                Customer Q & A

                Q1: I am interested in the Celestron PowerSeeker 60. Do I need to buy a erect image prism to see land objects?

                A: An erecting prism will not be needed with this scope to see terrestrial objects.

                Q2: Is the 3X Barlow lens included as indicated in the writeup for the Celestron PowerSeeker 60 or just the 20mm and 4mm lens?

                A: The Celestron PowerSeeker 60 telescope includes the 3X Barlow lens.

                Q3: Along with the mount, is the tripod included?

                A: The Celestron PowerSeeker 60 telescope includes the tripod.

                Q4: Is it possable to see the moon and the planets with this telescope?

                A: You will definitely be able to view the moon with this telescope. As for planets, you would be able to see the largest planets in our solar system, Jupiter and Saturn.
