A nice scope for daytime and astronomy use. Scope and Tripod fit into the included backpack, making it easy to take with you. An excellent additional family activity for your next camping trip. The scope and included eyepieces are suitable for good wide-field views of the Moon, star clusters like the Pleiades, and will show Jupiter and its 4 major moons. But, you won't see high magnification view of the planets, and the tripod is flimsy.
