      Comments about iOptron Astroboy I Portable Table Telescope:

      I bought this as a gift for my husband and I to enjoy the stars when out camping. We have not tried it yet but will get out chance after Christmas (since it is a Christmas gift). It was shipped out just after I placed the order so it is wrapped and under the tree.

        Comments about iOptron Astroboy I Portable Table Telescope:

        This is a wonderful gift I received. It took almost no time to set up. I couldn't believe it actually found any stars I named. It is great for land objects too.

        Comments about iOptron Astroboy I Portable Table Telescope:

        I got this grab and go scope as a first scope for my kids. It is easy to set up and tracking is unbelievable good. It has been used for tracking the Sun (with a solar filter, of cause) and the Sun stayed inside a 25mm eyepiece whole day! It is also good for terrestrial use. I wish the hand controller can remember my time setting.
