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.
