I tested this scope by viewing the moon. There was a lot of ghosting in this scope. I traced the problem to the end cap by the eyepiece which internal to the telescope was a shiny brass curved surface! No tools are needed to unscrew the focus mechanism from the end cap and the end cap from the tube. A bit of sanding, and some black chalkboard paint helped a lot. I went further and added some sticky back flocked paper I had for telescope tube lining. If your scope has an annoying ghost image, it is a quick and easy fix.

Attractive Telescope

Pro - Very attractive. Con - Tripod is poorly designed. The tension screws do not hold well and the legs want to collapse.

      This telescope is a beautiful piece! It's quite large so it needs a large space, but it's so beautiful that it will be sure to be the focal point in any setting.

          Comments about Zhumell Commodore Brass Telescope:

          Because the lens in an achromat it is good that it is a long focal length refractor. The specifications provided are not correct, and even the math is wrong 1000mm f12.5 indicates this is a 80mm objective (not 70). The manual has the specs for another scope. The tripod legs, and alt/az mount are adequate. The scope is beautiful to look at, just wish it had interchangeable eyepieces.

            We are so pleased with this telescope and the price we paid for it. This is a museum quality piece, yet still functional. It was very easy to assemble and was packaged extremely well. It was our first Hayneedle purchase and we will definitely be purchasing through them again!
